Flash & Acrobat Vulernable To Remote Hijacking…. Meanwhile Steve Is Laughing At Adobe


Adobe. You have some explaining to do.

Adobe dropped this little bombshell on the universe late yesterday. Apparently if you run Flash or Acrobat (and lets face it, who doesn’t other than Steve Jobs), you could be open to remote crashes and remote hijacking. Oh yeah, Mac, PC, UNIX are all open to these attacks. Adobe recommends moving to the release candidate for Flash, and deleting authplay.dll to keep you safe until Adobe gets around to updating things. Meanwhile I’m going to guess that Apple is going to take full advantage of this and illustrate how bad Flash is.

Oh wait. They already have.
