Adobe Issued Emergency Flash Update For Windows and Mac Users

Adobe released a new security patch addressing a critical vulnerability (CVE-2014-0497) in its Flash product that could allow an attacker to remotely take control of an affected system.

Attackers can typically trigger such vulnerabilities after luring victims to websites hosting the attacks. Affected versions include Flash Player 12.0.0.43 and earlier for Windows and Mac as well as Flash Player 11.2.202.335 and earlier for Linux. 

The Windows and Mac updates both have priority ratings of "one", which Adobe defines as an update that resolves vulnerabilities being targeted by exploits in the wild and thus should be installed by administrators "as soon as possible".

Adobe recommend to  users manually update to the latest versions of the product unless they are already using the newest versions of the Google Chrome and Internet Explorer. 

Flash Player installed with Google Chrome will automatically update to the latest Google Chrome version, which includes Adobe Flash Player 12.0.0.44 for Windows, Macintosh and Linux.
