Adobe responds to recent Flash flaw with a fix

Flash FlawThe Flash security flaw that we recently wrote about has been addressed by Adobe and a new version is being offered.

This security flaw was affecting PC and Mac users and allowed hackers to redirect you to nasty .SWF files which could then potentially execute malicious code on your machine.

You can feel secure (as well as warm and fuzzy) by downloading a Flash update with the fix here.

It's a pretty fast response to a pretty serious issue, so Adobe gets the pass this time.

Special thanks to commenter daniel free for the heads up!
