Quick Question about the recent Vulnerability

Jun 1, 2008 8:42 AM

I've been trying to find this out for the last few days and adobe hasn't responded to me yet. Does anyone know with the recent vulnerability, is there something that is put on the user's machine? I got hacked w/ an account and I was thinking this was the reason. However I can't find anything at all relating even close to a virus on my machine. All the things I have read said that the person executes code remotely (does that mean from their machine? and not mine?)

I just want to make sure my machine is clean before I go ahead and change passwords etc to my own.

So basically, did the vulnerability allow the user to put something hidden on my computer or did they run something from their computer?

Thanks for any info,

Justin

    The recent vulnerability (last week's 'zero-day' report from Symantek) turned out to be something we'd already addressed in the current release of Flash Player 9.0.124.0..

    David Lenoe (our security lead) blogged this last week:

    So as far as I know that was a non-vulnerability.
