    Adobe: Critical Security Vulnerability

    Adobe Systems Inc. warns users about a critical vulnerability in its Flash Player, Adobe Reader and Acrobat products, which could allow an attacker to exploit them and gain access into a system. A security update was not mentioned until now.

    This vulnerability was also confirmed from Trend Micro researchers, who said that they have identified some malicious files trying to exploit the vulnerability.
    The vulnerability was found in Flash Player and earlier versions for Windows, Macintosh, Linux and Solaris operating systems, and the authplay.dll which accompanies Adobe Reader and Acrobat 9.x for Windows, Macintosh and UNIX operating systems.

    The risk could be mitigated if users delete, rename or remove the authplay.dll file, as the company mentioned, but users still wait for an immediate update.
