Hey! Let's be careful out there...

Adobe has released security updates for Adobe Flash Player for Windows, Macintosh and Linux. These updates address vulnerabilities that could potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system.

Adobe recommends users update their product installations to the latest versions: - Users of the Adobe Flash Player desktop runtime for Windows and Macintosh should update to Adobe Flash Player 17.0.0.134. - Users of Adobe Flash Player for Linux should update to Adobe Flash Player 11.2.202.451.

To see which version of Flash you have installed, check this link: https://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/

Although Adobe Flash may be configured to automatically update on many users’ computers, some users have reported that it can sometimes take days before they a security update is rolled out to them. For that reason, you may prefer to visit Adobe’s site directly to download the latest version: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ but beware potentially unwanted add-ons, like McAfee Security Scan. To avoid this, uncheck the pre-checked box before downloading, or grab your OS-specific Flash download from here: http://www.adobe.com/products/flashp...ribution3.html

Adobe Flash Player installed with Google Chrome, as well as Internet Explorer on Windows 8.x, should automatically update to version 17.0.0.134.

Windows users who browse the Web with anything other than Internet Explorer may need to apply this patch twice, once with IE and again using the alternative browser (Firefox, Opera, e.g.).

Windows users should take full advantage of the Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET), a free tool from Microsoft that can help Windows users beef up the security of third-party applications: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/downl....aspx?id=43714
