Adobe Patches Shockwave Vulnerability
« on: October 30, 2015, 09:04:03 PM »
Adobe has released a patch for Shockwave Player. The vulnerability the
patch fixes could be exploited to infect Windows and Mac machines and
execute code remotely. Users running Shockwave version 12.2.0.162 and
earlier should upgrade to version 12.2.1.171.

Flash should just die. I don't use it, too many security issues. Same with Java which I've also abandoned. I now use the Minecraft official launcher which includes Java but it can only be executed by Minecraft itself as a dependency and can't be used in your web browser or used by other java software on your system etc
