Another exploited zero-day vulnerability has been uncovered and patched in Adobe Flash, 24 hours after a second flaw in the popular web trinket was found being used in attack kits.Yup, this means everyone needs to upgrade, even Linux nerds like me. You can upgrade for free here.
Adobe is examining yesterday's zero day, picked up by French researcher Kafeine who spotted it after analysing a version of the popular Angler exploit kit.
The vulnerability affected Flash Player versions up to 18.104.22.168 and the latest 22.214.171.1247.
The latest zero-day, now fixed in a rare emergency patch for Windows, Mac and Linux, was being used by attackers to circumvent memory randomisation mitigations in Windows.
