The internet's screen door?
More like the herpes of the internet.
Adobe has kicked out an out-of-band update for a security vulnerability in Flash – after learning the bug was being actively exploited in the wild by hackers to hijack PCs. The Photoshop giant said today its Flash Player 18.104.22.168 update should be a top installation priority for Mac, Windows, and Linux systems. One of the …
what's a good word for someone who's SO irreponsible and careless, he is frequently getting cured of a sexually transmitted disease, yet is also frequently, carelessly, and irresponsibly engaging in behavior that easily contracts and spreads these diseases?
THAT is what Adobe Flash is. I'm thinking "skank".
"The Photoshop giant said today its Flash Player 22.214.171.124 update should be a top installation priority for Mac, Windows, and Linux systems."
Adobe, I'm sorry I couldn't come into work today. Evidently the person you had making press statements hasn't read my playbook. The quote should have resulted in this excerpt from the article:
"The Photoshop giant said today its Flash Player 126.96.36.199 update should be immediately installed over any older version, and then both it and all related versions should be permanently purged from the user's computer. This is a top priority for Mac, Windows, and Linux systems."
I'll be back to work after the weekend. Please put this statement out, however, as it is quite urgent.
Just discovered that one on my laptop (which is considered insecure, always). Ripped Flash out some time ago. Just did a file search on the C:\ drive on a lark. I'm not even going to bother counting how many instances are in there and that's just the SxS files.
both, from orbit, only way to be sure.
"These attacks leverage Office documents with embedded malicious Flash content distributed via email."
This combination is cringe-inducing in terms of both the insecurity of Office allowing Flash payloads and the existence of professionals who think embedding Flash in Word docs is somehow good communication.
Come on, MS, it's 2018, time to think through how insecure highly active content payloads are in Office docs. An Office doc's payload should have really limited access outside of its own representation. Perhaps fetching data in from databases, certainly nothing affecting the OS. And since Flash is too much of a sieve to trust, disable it. Do it now, you're only what 2-3 years of Adobe's own announced retirement for the mangy mutt.
If your Riggs are that flaky that they can't withstand a buffer overflow bug you have other issues....
John Doe Southern Yank with no MalwareSink/AV/Anti-Spam/Browser addons, yeah yer toast, but you've always been toast. at least I can charge OT this week end from home for running a few update scripts on 10K platforms...again....so...thanks?
