New Adobe Flash Player Update – Fixing Vulnerabilities

There is a new update from Adobe that rolled out for Flash Player, Acrobat and Reader. It patches a lot of vulnerabilities, addressing the many critical flaws of Flash Player.

Fortunately, there were no attacks until the vulnerabilities got addressed.

Dozens of Vulnerabilities Were Fixed

Adobe has stated that they have also rolled out security bulletins for many other programs: Adobe Experience Manager, Connect, DNG Converter, Digital Editions, InDesign CC, Photoshop CC, and Shockwave Player.

If you haven’t updated your Adobe Flash Player on Windows, Linux, Chrome OS, or Mac, Adobe Advises users to update the affected version (27.0.0.183) to the newest one – 27.0.0.187. The update is available on all platforms and on these browsers: Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Microsoft Edge.

We mentioned the critical flaws – remote execution vulnerabilities, which were discovered and reported by the Zero Day Initiative and a Chinese source.

Both Adobe Reader and Adobe Acrobat update have patched 56 vulnerabilities – most of them being critical remote code execution. There were also some important bug fixes that addressed security bypass bugs and a flaw that caused crashes.

How to Update Adobe Flash Player

If you are using Chrome browser, you can update your Adobe Flash Player by checking if you have updated your browser. If it isn’t up to date, you should first solve this issue and as soon as it updates, it will trigger the update for Adobe Flash Player too.

For other browsers users will have to go to the official Adobe website and manually update Adobe Flash Player. Their website detects your OS version of your computer and you will see the system requirements before you begin installing the newest version of Adobe Flash Player.

As you already know, Adobe Flash Player will be killed off in 2020, but we will see a lot of security patches and support from Adobe until Flash Player’s very end.
