The ongoing battle against the exploitation of Adobe Flash continues. This is but the latest in a long line of flaws and vulnerabilities to plague Flash and its brothers and sisters in the Adobe family of products. Please review your environments and patch accordingly. Also, take the time to educate your users to the nature of this particular exploit.
Please review your Flash deployments if any remain and be prepared to remediate as soon as a patch is available. Flash honestly cannot disappear/die soon enough for the sake of end user security.
No one can say that they did not know this was coming, but I must admit I am excited that the light at the end of the tunnel is visible. We are getting closer to a day when this patch management nightmare will be over. Rest in peace Adobe Flash….as soon as possible.
Please review your implementations and patch accordingly.
The writing has been on the wall for some time with Flash, but this announcement means the transition away from Flash has kicked into high gear. Many people, myself included, have been blocking Flash for some time, but this will be a new experience for many. Take note and prepare.
The Adobe product set continues to be a high value target for cyber criminals as an exploit platform and/or pivot point.
New Adobe patches are here. Please review and patch accordingly.
This is yet another reason why Flash cannot be deprecated and eliminated from mainstream use soon enough. There are more flexible and secure options for this type of content.
This is encouraging news, especially given the leverage and large Internet footprint Facebook commands.
This is a frightening example of targeted Android-based malware designed to compromise financial institution transaction from mobile devices. Be alert.
