Adobe releases security update for Flash Player

Warwick Ashford

Adobe has issued a security update for Adobe Flash Player and earlier versions for Windows, Macintosh, Linux and Solaris, as well as Adobe Flash Player and earlier versions for Android.

The update fixes vulnerabilities that could cause a crash and potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system, according to an Adobe security bulletin.

Adobe categorises these as critical updates and recommends users upgrade their installations to the newest versions.

The scheduled security update comes just days after Adobe announced plans to scrap its Flash player plug-in for mobile browsers.

The company said it will halt development for its browser and operating system version to focus investment on HTML5 development.

An Adobe statement confirmed company plans to focus Flash resources on "PC web experiences" and mobile applications.
