In a flash – you could be vulnerable


0day – this stands for Zero Day in the parlance of the pentester and the blackhat alike. For the rest of us this simply means that someone could break into your computer using a vulnerability that the vendor doesn’t even know about yet.

Well that has changed since yesterday and Adobes Flash player now has a patch against what is now called CVE-2015-3113. It affects all systems Windows, Linux and Mac OS and it even affects those old Windows XP machines if you were smart enough to be running Firefox on too.

Check if you are vulnerable here (https://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/) and verify that you are running version 18.0.0.194. For Windows 8.1 x64 users like me that means applying KB3074219 from MS if you are running IE (you will need to restart too).

Run don’t walk to your patching system – read more about it here (https://helpx.adobe.com/security/products/flash-player/apsb15-14.html)
