Adobe flash sends out security fix
Category : General 19 Feb 2010 02:36 AM | Industry News
Adobe on Thursday made available an update to its widely deployed Flash Player to resolve a single "critical" flaw.
"The vulnerability could subvert the domain sandbox and make unauthorized cross-domain requests," resulting in a potential denial-of-service condition, according to a security bulletin. A successful exploit also could lead to a cross-site request forgery (CSRF) attack, Brad Arkin, Adobe's director of product security and privacy, said.
Adobe recommends users ditch Flash version and install, which is available here or through the software's automatic prompting feature.
Also on Thursday, the company announced plans to release an out-of-band update for its Reader and Acrobat software, according to a separate bulletin. The update for versions 9.3 and 8.2, scheduled for Tuesday, addresses a number of critical vulnerabilities and is meant for Windows, Mac and UNIX installations. One of the bugs remedied is the issue described in the Flash update.
Adobe's next scheduled quarterly update for Reader and Acrobat is April 13.
