Adobe Releases Shockwave Player Update and Flash Player Update

July 30th, 2009 . by DarkFiber Consulting

Adobe has released Shockware Player because previous versions used a vulnerable version of the Microsoft Active Template Library (ATL). Additionally, Adobe has released Flash Player and 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.
