More updates for six serious Adobe Flash flaws

Hot off the heels of last week’s Flash Player patch, Adobe has released more updates for six critical Flash Player flaws affecting Windows, Macs, Linux and Android systems.

The scheduled update follows a patch it released last week for a Flash Player flaw that was being used in attacks on Windows targets. Mac and Windows users that updated to version 11.3.300.271 last week should updated to version 11.4.402.265 from today.

Linux machines running Flash Player that did not update version to last week are being advised again to do that today, while Flash Player in Chrome will be automatically updated with the latest browser version. Flash Player for all Android versions should also be updated to the latest version.

Adobe is also advising Adobe AIR users to install the latest update.

“These updates address vulnerabilities that could cause a crash and potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system,” said Adobe’s bulletin. It said it was not aware of any of the flaws being exploited.

Adobe gave the Windows Flash Player update a priority rating of one because of the higher likelihood it would be targeted. Adobe advises administrators to install this update ideally within three days.
