Adobe acknowledges critical security flaw in software

In a security advisory, Adobe said: "There are reports that this vulnerability is being actively exploited in the wild against both Adobe Flash Player, and Adobe Reader and Acrobat".

Whilst it works to fix the problem, the company suggested upgrading to the latest "release candidate" for the Adobe Flash Player, version 10.1, which it said "does not appear to be vulnerable".

Alternatively, the company said that Adobe Reader and Acrobat users could delete or rename the "authplay.dll" file on their system.

However, Adobe said that doing so meant that "users will experience a non-exploitable crash or error message when opening a PDF file that contains SWF [Adobe Flash] content."

Funny feeling of this all over again,
last year, if i remember right, they had a security flaw and asked people to update to version 9 as this was 'clean'
enough said.

That sounds more like a bodge than a cure
