Adobe security update

Exploits targeting two previously unreported flaws in Flash Player prompted Adobe to release an emergency patch yesterday. One of the attacks is targeting aerospace and other manufacturing companies, and is being delivered via infected Microsoft Office documents. The other is being carried out over the Web targeting Firefox and Safari on Mac OS X.

Adobe’s second set of security updates coinciding with Microsoft’s monthly patch releases were made available today. The two bulletins include patches for vulnerabilities in Adobe Flash Player and Adobe ColdFusion.The Flash vulnerabilities for Windows are rated most severe by Adobe and successful exploits could result in crashes, or an attacker being able to remotely execute code.
