+ - Adobe to Issue Emergency Flash Fix Wednesday->

wiredmikey writes: Adobe today said it would release a Flash Player update tomorrow, September 21, 2011. The out of cycle update will address critical security issues in flash player as well as an important universal cross-site scripting issue that is reportedly being exploited in the wild in targeted attacks.

To illustrate the importance of keeping systems up to date, including Adobe flash products, the fact that the RSA cyber attack was executed using a spear phishing attack with an embedded flash file should serve as a friendly reminder. RSA was breached after an employee opened a spreadsheet that contained a zero-day exploit that installed a backdoor through an Adobe Flash vulnerability.
