Adobe have today released a patch to sort out the critical vulnerability in Flash that was discovered last week, which is a quick turnaround.
The company may have managed to shoot itself in the foot with this patch however as you’ll see from the amusing screenshot below, where the news story about the patch in the new version ofÂ the Flash PlayerÂ is accompanied by a picture of Homer Simplson asking “Ooh. They have the Internet on Computers now!”
Okay, so this is a banner advert for an Adobe Air app, but I had to share the irony of the event with you.
The patch fixes a critical vulnerability which could allow your PC to be hijacked remotely and it covers Windows, Mac and Linux users, so everybody should upgrade.Â All PC users should upgrade their version of Flash as soon as possible to prevent their PCs being vulnerable to the flaw.
An update for Acrobat and Acrobat reader is due sometime in the next week or so to fix the same vulnerability.
