Extra Adobe Update for Hacking Team Zero Day Exploit

Blog Post

Adobe made a second announcement recently addressing the zero day exploit brought to light by Hacking Team documents that were stolen and leaked online.

Adobe Flash will be receiving another patch this week.  The vulnerability exists in the current version of Flash on Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems.  Code showing hackers how to exploit the vulnerability is easily available online, making it a very important update for Adobe to release and for you to apply.

Adobe released an update addressing a different vulnerability discovered from the Hacking Team hack, but the exploit was almost immediately incorporated into exploit kits.  There's no reason to suspect that this other vulnerability isn't already in use as well.
