Adobe Issues Another Flash Security Warning
Another round of ammunition has been added to all Apple fan boy’s arsenals with this new security warning for flash 10.3. The vulnerability affects all desktop versions as well as the mobile version for Android, it targets the user by sending a malicious link via email. Adobe suggests updating immediately as the threat has been classified as important and issued this statement.
“This universal cross-site scripting vulnerability (CVE-2011-2107) could be used to take actions on a user’s behalf on any website or webmail provider, if the user visits a malicious website. There are reports that this vulnerability is being exploited in the wild in active targeted attacks designed to trick the user into clicking on a malicious link delivered in an email message.”
An update for the desktop version is available now, with an Android update
due by the end of the week. UPDATE: v10.3.185.23 is live now. What do you guys think, can this be used as an argument for no flash on mobile devices or do you think people that click suspicious links in emails deserve what comes to them? Sound off in the comments below!
