“This vulnerability could cause a crash and potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system,2 said Adobe in a security advisory.
The new exploit affects mainly PC’s but Android may be susceptible due to its use of a Flash player yet right now only flash via PDF is being exploited successfully.
The vulnerability is rated critical and can lead to remote code execution. Meaning the hacker can take control over your computer and install malicious programs without you knowing. Then they have access to anything stored on the system. So watch out.
All versions of Flash are vulnerable including Windows, Linux, Mac and our beloved Android. A patch for Adobe Reader and Adobe Acrobat are expected by the second week in November even earlier for Flash. So the most you have to wait is a couple of weeks.
If your concerned that you may be susceptible to an attack, only go to trusted sites for your Adobe related material, Or just do not read any PDF files until the bug is fixed. Don’t forget to update your Adobe Flash Player on your Android OS and on your PC.
