Massive Adobe Flash Update Patches 79 Vulnerabilities


Recommended Posts

Adobe Flash is automatically updated along with Windows updates in Windows 8, 8.1 and 10.


However, if you are running Windows 7 or Vista you need to update Flash manually. There are many websites that come up in searches for Flash, the safe vendor download page is https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

"Adobe may indeed be thinking about phasing out Flash Player, and updates like today’s monster security bulletin will only serve to fuel that movement going forward.


Released just an hour before Microsoft’s scheduled Patch Tuesday release, Adobe pushed out a new version of the maligned Flash Player that addressed 79 CVEs. None of the patched vulnerabilities, Adobe said, are being exploited publicly.


Most of the vulnerabilities (56) are use-after-free flaws that could lead to code execution on the compromised machine.Adobe said version and earlier for Windows and Macintosh are affected for the desktop version of Flash.


Adobe also released an update for Google Chrome and Microsoft’s Edge browser, as well as Internet Explorer 10 and 11.In addition to the dozens of use-after-free vulnerabilities, Adobe also patched a dozen memory corruption vulnerabilities, two heap buffer overflows, stack, integer and buffer overflow vulnerabilities, in additional to security bypass flaws and a type confusion vulnerability."
