Flash Logo Adobe has announced an emergency patch that is scheduled to be released some time later today (Wednesday 21 September). The update will address several previously unknown critical holes in Flash Player. The new version is also designed to close a universal cross-site scripting (XSS) hole that Adobe says is already being actively exploited. The company's security blog doesn't provide any further details.

Google has already released updated stable and beta channel versions of its Chrome browser 14.0.835.186 for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and Chrome Frame. The updates contain only a corrected version of Flash Player.
