Adobe releases flash patch to counter malware attacks on OS X and Windows
A new patch by Adobe Systems fixes the two Flash player vulnerabilities currently under attack. The attacks install malware and targets both Macs and PCs. The targets all seem to be Flash versions for OS X and Windows. The patch, however, is also available for Linux and Android.
The exploits target Safari as well as Firefox, of which the vulnerability is classified as CVE-2013-0634. The vulnerability is also reportedly tricking Windows users into opening Word documents containing the Flash content.
The bug, according to Adobe, was discovered by members of the Shadowserver Foundation, Lockheed Martin's Computer Incident Response Team and MITRE.
