Adobe security updates address critical Flash Player bugs

Adobe on Monday released security updates across multiple platforms that address vulnerabilities in Flash Player and AIR, some of which are deemed critical.

Among all of the bugs are a variety of type confusion, use-after-free, buffer overflow, memory corruption, stack corruption and stack overflow vulnerabilities that can lead to code execution, a Monday security bulletin said. The updates also include fixes for a memory leak vulnerability and flaws that could lead to information disclosure.

In a release emailed to on Monday, Adobe said it is not aware of any exploits in the wild that are targeting these vulnerabilities. However, Adobe considers the Flash Player update for Windows and Macintosh to be Priority 1, so users should update to as soon as possible.
