Adobe is once again warning of an important vulnerability. This time it involves all Flash Players (Windows, Mac, Linux, Solaris and Android).
If a user is tricked into visiting a malicious website (by a link in an email for example), the malicious website will then be able to act as the user at other websites or email providers.
You can protect yourself by doing the following, but don't delay because the vulnerability is already being used by malicious websites.
- Check what version you have installed by visiting the Adobe About Flash Player Page.
- Download and install the latest version of Flash:
Android users can get their Flash Player update via the Android Market.
Flash for Firefox, Opera, Chrome and Safari.
