Some tech friends of mine posted at their website about a security advisory for Adobe flash player, Adobe Reader and Acrobat.
http://www.adobe.com/support/securit...apsa10-01.htmlA critical vulnerability exists in Adobe Flash Player 10.0.45.2 and earlier versions for Windows, Macintosh, Linux and Solaris operating systems, and the authplay.dll component that ships with Adobe Reader and Acrobat 9.x for Windows, Macintosh and UNIX operating systems. This vulnerability (CVE-2010-1297) could cause a crash and potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system. There are reports that this vulnerability is being actively exploited in the wild against both Adobe Flash Player, and Adobe Reader and Acrobat.
There is an update for Adobe Flash Player 10.1 (release candidate) here:
You'll need to download the uninstaller first and uninstall Flash Player 10.0.45.2 before downloading Adobe Flash Player 10.1 release candidate 7. Everything worked fine with the uninstaller and with downloading the Flash Player. I downloaded Flash Player Active X for Windows Internet Explorer only. If you use Chrome, Firefox, etc., you'll need to download both Flash Players:
I went to Youtube and Universal Sports after I installed Flash Player 10.1. I experienced no complications watching videos. I also went to Photobucket and there were no complications there.
I don't use the Adobe Reader or Acrobat. I use the free Foxit Reader but the instructions for correcting the vulnerabilty with Adobe Reader are listed in the links I provided.
