Adobe Addresses Security Vulnerabilities in Flash, but not Acrobat or Reader

Adobe has released a new version of the Flash plugin for Mac, Windows, and Linux, that addresses a serious security vulnerability. The update fixes a critical flaw which could cause your computer to be hacked merely by viewing a malicious SWF (Shockwave Flash) file, according to Adobe’s advisory

Adobe has a Web page that will automatically display what Flash version you’re using, and allow you to download the update, if needed.

Meanwhile, there’s no fix yet for a serious security flaw in Adobe Acrobat and Reader that was reported a few weeks ago. (More Info at Macworld)
