Another day, another Flash vulnerability


Oh Flash, you make it too easy to laugh at you. If you have Flash 10.3 installed, and God knows why you would, you should probably know that Adobe has identified yet another vulnerability in their code.

Adobe is recommending that you run out right now, and update your Flash to a brand-new, surely buggy as well, version of 10.3.  If you’re keeping score, 10.3 was release on May 13, 2011. It didn’t even last a full month.

This universal cross-site scripting vulnerability (CVE-2011-2107) could be used to take actions on a user’s behalf on any website or webmail provider, if the user visits a malicious website. There are reports that this vulnerability is being exploited in the wild in active targeted attacks designed to trick the user into clicking on a malicious link delivered in an email message.

Why the heck wouldn’t we want Flash on our iPhone? I mean, it really provides the ultimate web experience. What’s the web without battling a few pesky exploits.

On another note, props to RIM for hocking “Flash, ahhhhhhAHHHHH” in their Playbook commercial. Well done lads, well done.

Flash, providing the best the Internet has to offer since, well, the beginning of Flash.

Oh yeah, this also affects your mobile phone, or any other device rocking Flash 10.3, including you Android devices.
