Exploit attacks Flash Player 9 and 10 as well as Reader/Acrobat 9.x

Steve Jobs has been on a crusade against Adobe Flash for quite sometime citing issues with performance, stability, and security. Today, Adobe is fueling Jobs' concerns and likely giving the Apple CEO fodder for his WWDC keynote which is coming up on Monday.

According to Adobe, there is a critical vulnerability in versions of Flash Player (Windows, OS X, Linux, Solaris) and Reader/Acrobat 9.x (Windows, OS X, UNIX). The exploit allow a hacker to gain control over an affected system.

Even more troubling is that Adobe says that it currently doesn't have a fix and "there are reports that this vulnerability is being actively exploited in the wild."

Adobe says that the following versions of its products are affected:

  • Adobe Flash Player, 9.0.262, and earlier 10.0.x and 9.0.x versions
  • Adobe Reader and Acrobat 9.3.2 and earlier 9.x versions

It should be noted however, that the current Release Candidate version of Flash Player 10.1 "does not appear to be vulnerable" to this exploit and Adobe Reader/Acrobat 8.x are also safe.

You can view Adobe's full advisory on the exploit here which also details steps to minimize the impact of the exploit with Reader/Acrobat 9.x.

Eh...typical morons. Get over it idiots. Apple is prospering and every effort you monkeys have tried to harm them has failed. Spout your hate and propaganda. I'll sit back and enjoy watching your veins pop out as you achieve nothing.

Your company and your work sucks compared to what Apple puts out. This makes you look bad. Your only recourse is to spread hate and discontent to avert attention away from your own failings.

You can't help that you weren't born with the tools to succeed. But if you want to shit all over innocent companies and people, expect zero mercy or compassion. What you receive, you receive because of your own hatred. You live a life full of wretchedness and you wonder why your life sucks so bad. You're like a dog that keeps returning to do the same thing over and over again, never being able to rationalize your way out of your circumstance.

You'll always receive bad because you are faulty in your thinking. You never realize that your poor attitude will never allow you to prosper. You just keep trying to beat down the wall with your head. Darkness of understanding is where you are. You can't realize how ignorant you actually are.

Pissants like you all get passed by all the time and you become angry because the world doesn't stop for you to allow you to catch up with everyone. You have a high opinion of yourselves and believe you are the smartest and wisest. That's just adolescence screwing with you. When you get to your 30s and 40s your start to realize how big of idiots you have been in your life. And that you didn't even begin to know anything you thought you knew.

I'd love to have a view when that moment strikes you. Most people like you resort to suicide because all they thought they understood, you feeling of mastery over life, was an illusion.

I'm glad I'm past that point and can look back at people like you waiting to go through it. Laughing my ass off as you try to maintain dignity and ego. Completely oblivious to what you really are.

To the gentle and humble, they will receive compassion and mercy, help and guidance. To morons like you, you will be laughed at and screwed with. Because you actually believe you are more mature and noble than your victims; that you are actually wiser than your teacher.

You spout one lie and nothing stops you or strikes you down. So you begin to believe your own lies and set yourself up as the teacher of all.

Yeah...I would love to watch you all's progress... LOL

By the way, this is meant for everyone who responded to my last post. So long, suckers.

When you buy Apple products, you don't just buy a device, you buy a way of life. Attacking Apple is like attacking his family, so expect him to get personal, going on a tangent about how our lives are worthless.

I agree. He needs medical attention. His ability to debate logically is flawed by his inability to take Apple products for what they are........just devices.

A typical self righteous, elitist Apple customer.

It's not as genuine as a family; it's more artificial like a clique.
