Adobe Flash may well be one of the most controversial technologies on the web. Many web sites are dependent on it, but Apple has banned it from their iOS based mobile devices, citing security concerns. Some feel this cripples the functionality of iPhones, iPads and iPods, but there’s no denying that every time you turn around, you seem to hear about a new security vulnerability involving Flash.
A newly discovered Flash vulnerability can crash your system, or be exploited by an attacker to take control of it. If your users are running version 10.2.152.33 or earlier of the Flash Player, their systems are at risk – and it doesn’t matter whether they’re using Windows, Mac, Linux or Solaris.
