More problems for Adobe

Less than a week after learning about flaws in PDF software, Adobe users are now being told by the company that hackers are already taking advantage of a critical flaw in the current version of Flash to attack Windows PCs to 'cause a crash and potentially allow an attacker to take control.'

Adobe is saying the attacks are limited and only targeting Windows users, but according to digitaltrends.com, the software flaw is far reaching. In a report on Adobe's latest woes digitaltrends.com says, "All editions of Flash 9 and 10, including those for Windows, Mac, Linux, Solaris, and Google’s Android mobile operating system, and earlier versions, are affected. It’s also present in Adobe Reader and Acrobat, as well, since both programs include code to run Flash embedded in PDF documents."
