Adobe Issues Emergency Patch For Flash Bug

For those of you who still have Flash installed (which I am assuming is pretty much all of you), there is a new patch that you should install right away.

Adobe said one of the bugs was being actively exploited in a "limited number of targeted attacks". In total, the patch closes 23 separate security bugs in the Flash player. Attackers abusing the security holes would be able to take over a computer to steal useful data or spy on the machine's owner. The update urges people to apply the patch as soon as possible because many of the problems are rated as critical - the highest level.
