For those of you using the Adobe Flash player (including on Linux or
Android), and, possibly, Adobe Reader users as well: the company has announced
a "critical" vulnerability which, evidently, is being actively exploited.
"We are in the process of finalizing a fix for the issue and expect
to provide an update for Adobe Flash Player for Windows, Macintosh, Linux,
Solaris, and Android operating systems during the week of September 27,
2010. We expect to provide updates for Adobe Reader 9.3.4 for Windows,
Macintosh and UNIX, and Adobe Acrobat 9.3.4 for Windows and Macintosh
during the week of October 4, 2010.
" Even people who cannot do
without this software might want to consider taking it off their systems
until the update comes out.
