Security Advisory for Flash Issued by Adobe

Adobe_Flash_Player_iconWell here comes a potential issue that can be exploited by Steve Jobs of Apple in the upcoming World Wide Developer’s Conference.

Adobe announced a security advisory over some “critical” vulnerability among some of its products. Apparently it could let attackers take control of people’s computers, something that the company believes “is being actively exploited in the wild.”

The other major concern however is that there is no available fix as of this moment.

Affected software list is as follows:

  • Adobe Flash Player, 9.0.262, and earlier 10.0.x and 9.0.x versions for Windows, Macintosh, Linux, and Solaris
  • Adobe Reader and Acrobat 9.3.2 and earlier 9.x versions for Windows, Macintosh, and UNIX

The company also stated that the candidate release 10.1 for Flash does not seem to be affected by the problem. Version 8.x are confirmed not to be affected.

Steve Jobs has been in the warpath with Adobe for some quite time now stating that the Flash has some issues when it comes to performance, stability, and security.
