Adobe Logo Adobe has released its update for Flash Player to close the critical security issue that emerged last Monday. The company had warned of zero day vulnerability which was already being exploited in web pages and Word and Excel documents. Since an attacker can inject malicious code into a user's system, Adobe classifies the vulnerability at the highest level on its severity ratings which is "critical".

The update for Flash Player on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and Solaris is version and can be installed from Adobe's Download Center. Users of Android smartphones will still have to wait; Adobe is still working on the security update for that platform but should have it available by no later than the end of April. Adobe Air users should update to version 2.6.19140. Because Flash is built into Google's Chrome browser, an update released on Thursday closed has already closed the hole for that browser.
