According to “tripwire”, Adobe has issued an important security update which patches a total of 23 critical vulnerabilities in Flash Player.
On Monday, Adobe issued the firm's latest set of security updates, specifically targeting the Adobe Flash Player. The updates for Windows, Mac and Linux users address "critical vulnerabilities that could potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system," according to the software developer.
Adobe Flash Player Desktop Runtime and Adobe Flash Player Extended Support Release 18.0.0.232 and earlier, Adobe Flash Player for Google Chrome 18.0.0.233 and earlier, Adobe Flash Player for Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer 11 18.0.0.232 and earlier on Windows 10 and Adobe Flash Player for Internet Explorer 10 and 11 18.0.0.232 and earlier on Windows 8 and 8.1 are all impacted, as well as Adobe Flash Player for Linux versions 18.0.0.199 and earlier.
In addition, AIR Desktop Runtime 18.0.0.199 and earlier for Windows and Mac, AIR SDK 18.0.0.180 and AIR SDK & compiler 18.0.0.180 and earlier on Windows, Android and iOS and AIR for Android 18.0.0.143 and earlier are affected by this update.
The security flaws fixed in this update, all deemed critical, include a type confusion vulnerability, use-after-free flaws, buffer overflow issues and memory corruption vulnerabilities which could lead to remote code execution.
The update also resolves memory leak security flaws, stack corruption and stack overflow vulnerabilities as well as a security bypass vulnerability which could lead to information disclosure.
Adobe recommends users accept automatic updates for the Chrome and Internet Explorer browsers relating to Flash. Users can also manually download updates from the Download Center. Users of the Adobe Flash Player Extended Support Release are encouraged to update to version 18.0.0.241.
