    Adobe Flash Player Critical Security Update

    Adobe has released Version 28.0.0.161 of Adobe Flash Player. These updates address critical vulnerabilities that could lead to remote code execution in Adobe Flash Player 28.0.0.137 and earlier versions. Successful exploitation could potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system.

    In particular, the update addresses CVE-2018-4878 which exists in the wild, and is being used in limited, targeted attacks against Windows users. These attacks leverage Office documents with embedded malicious Flash content distributed via email. Also included in the update are functional fixes.

    Release date: February 6, 2018
    Vulnerability identifier: APSB18--03
    Platform: Windows, Macintosh, Linux and Chrome OS

    Update:

    *Important Note: Downloading the update from the Adobe Flash Player Download Center link includes a pre-checked option to install unnecessary extras, such as McAfee Scan Plus or Google Drive. If you use the download center, uncheck any unnecessary extras that you do not want. They are not needed for the Flash Player update.
