Recent Leak Reveals New Adobe Flash ExploitAnd everyone was vulnerable.

It seems like Flash has more security holes than the Swiss cheese and thanks to a recent leak, every single one of computers running it were vulnerable to a new attack.

The news come after the breach of the “Hacking Team”, an Italian spyware manufacturer, which have had clients (mostly governments) from all over the world. As it turns out, in more than 400 gigabytes of published data, there was a yet unknown Flash vulnerability, which too got revealed and allowed anyone (with some tech knowledge) to exploit computers running Adobe Flash 18.0.0.194 or earlier.

This is probably the worst one yet. Thankfully, it is now fixed so be sure to update your systems or get rid of Adobe’s player completely.
