Yawn. Today is Tuesday, so I guess hackers wanted to spice things up at Adobe again, this time with a new security exploit for the latest version of Flash Player 10.2 on Windows, Mac, Linux and Android. The exploit would allow the attacker to insert malicious code into the user’s system and in some cases, completely take control of the system.
The easiest way to avoid the gaping security hole is to know how not to get infected: It is typically delivered as a Flash file embedded in a Microsoft Word document attached to an email. Adobe is currently working on the issue, but no date for the patch has been mentioned.
