V techsquad | Online Technical Support

It seems like a never-ending job for Adobe to patch up vulnerabilities (dug out by hackers) in its Flash Player software which seems to be the largest carrier of infections. To prevent Adobe Flash Player from running in trouble again, Adobe issued third security patch update in a row in this month (February 27th). This critical security update patch addresses vulnerabilities of existing as well as earlier Adobe Flash Player versions of Windows (Adobe Flash Player 11.6.602.168), Mac (Adobe Flash Player 11.6.602.167), and Linux versions (Adobe Flash Player 11.2.202.270).

According to Adobe, “These updates fix vulnerabilities that could cause a crash and potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system. Adobe is aware of reports that CVE-2013-0643 and CVE-2013-0648 are being exploited in the wild in targeted attacks designed to trick the user into clicking a link which directs to a website serving malicious Flash (SWF) content. The exploit for CVE-2013-0643 and CVE-2013-0648 is designed to target the Firefox browser.”
