http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1021119?tstart=0 b/c 11.3 is a quarterly update and is not being installed through the silent update mechanism in 11.2. Are any of the exploits found in 22.214.171.124 and fixed in 11.3 being actively exploited in the wild? This is important b/c I wanted 11.2 to update eventually update itself whenever that will be, but if there is security risk, I will manually install 11.3.
You can find a full description of the security enhancements and fixes in the release notes, here:
If you have viruses in your shop, then you have a serious security issue, and this is certainly not caused by Flash or Java!
I have Flash and Java on all our computers, and we have never seen any malware on our networks.
wow really? im talking about customers bringing in there pcs with viruses from flash exploits on porn sites or other facebook exploits.
didnt think id need to give a line-itemized detail to how u get viruses.
look at this link, educate yourself a bit, dont be scared, this is a flash program designed to deploy fake viurses..........
its usually deployed through a fake flash update
or as i was saying use flash for the virus
here is proof.
while the cnet article is proof of concept...
next time dont sound so stupid.
... while the cnet article is proof of concept...
Based on a 10 years old article?
Are you aware of how many Flash updates have been released on that period of time?
How has Flash Technology been improved its security since then?
Anyway... It seems you didn't read the article further after that sentence... and as if it was written today:
... "The virus is not the first to try to fool those PC users with a weakness for Flash movies"...
... "This is (was) just a new way to get into the PC" ,,, "It does show that the virus writters are always looking for new battlegrounds" ...
skriptkiddys are skriptkiddys weather its java, flash, C++ or machine code FFS.
but if apple isnt using flash because of the incessant updating and glitching and bugs, then my point is still proven, in spades even.
I am asking b/c this this article says that 126.96.36.199 is being actively exploited. "Users should on no account downgrade to build 11.2, however, as it is known to contain critical security vulnerabilities which are currently being actively exploited."
However, Adobe says that the exploits in 188.8.131.52 aren't being actively exploited b/c they are all discovered by researchers. A lot of times, these tech writers are extremely sloppy with what they report. I just want a clarrifying statement b/c it would help be decide what to do with flash on a couple of computers, to rush through the 11.3 update or wait for the update mechanism for quarterly updates do its thing in 7 to 30 days.
We maintain a version of Flash Player 10 for Enterprise customers, who are generally more interested in security updates than new Flash Player features.
If you need to roll back, and don't need the functionality provided by Flash Player 11, rolling back to the latest version of Flash Player 10 would be the best option.
