Flash 27.0.0.170 fixes one security issue

Adobe logoAnd just like that, we get another version of Flash, this one addressing a single security vulnerability. From the security bulletin: “Adobe is aware of a report that an exploit for CVE-2017-11292 exists in the wild, and is being used in limited, targeted attacks against users running Windows.”

Anyone still using Flash in their web browser should install the new version as soon as possible. You can check which version you’re running and download the new one at the Flash version checker and download page.

As usual, Chrome will get the new Flash via its own internal update system, and Microsoft browsers will be updated via Windows Update.

Proceeds from writing, software sales, and contract programming gigs paid his way through university, earning him a Bachelor of Science (Computer Science) degree at UWO. Jeff went on to work as a programmer, sysadmin, and manager in various industries. There's more on the About page, and on the Jeff Rivett Consulting site.
