There is a new adobe flash player vulnerability found by Trend Micro. Here is what you need to know:
- Adobe told they would publish the fix next week. However they did faster job and published the fix yesterday.
- The attacks seem to be targeted attacks against to government entities. However once exploit becomes available to larger audience then I would expect they would start attacking regular users too.
- Mac, Linux, Windows are all affected by this vulnerability.

If your company cannot update its flash player for some reason I would encourage them to block e-mails with following subject lines:
“Suicide car bomb targets NATO troop convoy Kabul”
“Syrian troops make gains as Putin defends air strikes”
“Israel launches airstrikes on targets in Gaza”
“Russia warns of response to reported US nuke buildup in Turkey, Europe”
“US military reports 75 US-trained rebels return Syria”
