Adobe has released Shockware Player 188.8.131.521 because previous versions used a vulnerable version of the Microsoft Active Template Library (ATL). Additionally, Adobe has released Flash Player 10.0.22.87 and 184.108.40.206 to address the ATL issue and additional vulnerabilities in Flash Player. Exploitation of these vulnerabilities may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code.
DarkFiber Consulting encourages users and administrators to review Adobe security bulletins APSB09-11 and APSB09-10 and apply any necessary updates to help mitigate the risks. Additional information can be found in the Adobe PSIRT blog and in Adobe security advisory APSA09-04.
