Patch Tuesday deja vu: Adobe patches Flash ... again

Double-take for IT admins

Intelligent flash storage arrays

Adobe yesterday released a Flash Player update just one week after its patch Tuesday release, providing a bit of extra hassle for admins for the second Tuesday in a row.

The latest (APSB12-19) update for Adobe Flash and Adobe AIR addresses six cross-platform flaws in Adobe Flash Player for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and Android smartphones. Five of the six flaws are categorised as critical because they might easily lend themselves to planting malware on machines running vulnerable versions of Adobe's software. Researchers said this especially applied to Windows machines where the risk is at its nastiest.

The updates come a week after Flash Player was updated as part of Adobe's normal Patch Tuesday update cycle. Adobe also released new versions of Acrobat/Reader and Shockwave player at the time.
