Adobe Security Updates for Acrobat, Reader and Flash Player

Yesterday, Adobe released critical security updates for it's Reader, Acrobat and Flash Player applications.

Hackers attacked vulerable PC's by embedding corrupted Flash files (.swf) inside Microsoft Excel files (.xls) and sending it as an e-mail attachment.

Until this update was released, the best defense tactic was not to open any .xls files that you didn't request.

Vulnerable operating systems: Windows, Linux, Solaris and Android.

You are encouraged to download the latest updates from Adobe's download page.
