Adobe Releases Emergency Patch For Flash

Yet again Flash is the means of attack by a Chinese hacking group that Fireeye has labelled APT3.

The attack IS in the wild, although limited in use.

The attack looks like a phishing email offering discounts on Apple computers.

You can find out what version of flash you are running at http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/ and download the newest update at https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ .

Even though I have updates enabled on this computer, the version of Flash that I was running was 34 versions old.  Of course, Adobe may not have released any or all of those intermediate versions.

You may remember that Steve Jobs was not a big fan of Flash – to be very polite.  This is just one of the reasons why.
