A few days ago, Adobe has released 4 security bulletins, and with this occasion, the company has announced some new patches for its products such as Flash Player, Shockwave Player, Captivate, and Digital Editions.
We agree that all security bulletins are very important, but today we will talk about the one related to the Adobe Flash Player, as this is surely one of the most used tools from Adobe.
Adobe Flash Player: June Security Update
You should know that the new Adobe Flash Player security update is now available for Chrome OS, Linux, Macintosh and Windows. The new update fixes a few critical vulnerabilities that could allow a hacker to take control of your computer. We suggest you to download and install the Adobe Flash Player version 188.8.131.52 as soon as possible, so that you can protect your computers from hackers.
Adobe Shockwave Player: June Security Update
Adobe has also released the Adobe Shockwave Player version 184.108.40.206. This new update is fixing some critical memory corruption vulnerability that could also lead to code execution.
Adobe Captivate: June Security Update
If you are using Adobe Captivate on your computer, then you should update it to 10.0.0.192 as soon as possible. This new version of adobe Captivate is resolving an important information disclosure vulnerability.
Adobe Digital Editions: June Security Update
You are advised to update to the version 4.5.5 of Adobe Digital Editions, as the company claims that the previous version of the application had some critical memory corruption vulnerabilities, which have been solved in the latest version.
As you can see, Adobe is trying really hard to fix all security issues on its applications. However, when it comes to the Flash Player, we think that it’s a bit too late for it, as HTML5 has started being used by very big companies, which means that sooner or later the application developed by Adobe will “die.”
