zero_day_flaw_tpsu_membersAdobe has issued an advisory warning of the zero-day flaw (CVE-2015-0313), a previously unknown point of vulnerability within the latest version (version 16.0.0.296), as well as earlier versions of its Flash Player plugin. If exploited, this download attack causes a system crash that allows the attacker to take control of the affected system. Unfortunately this kind of attack is quite commonly and actively used; at this point the download attack has been actively linked to maladvertising against Internet Explorer and Firefox users, on either Windows, Mac or Linux (versions 11.2.202.440 and earlier).
