Adobe works to fix Flash’s security flaw




Adobe Flash

After a public leak of information, an online surveillance company revealed that Adobe Flash was subject to a hacking bug. An Italian firm of hired hackers, known for that selling software to companies around the world, was reportedly aware of the issue beforehand. Sunday, a public post made Adobe aware that Italian company had been aware of the flaws. The leak in information was “immediately weaponized” as 400GB of data was stolen and exploited. The Italian software team describes the software bug as, “the most beautiful Flash bug for the last four years.”

A software company, Trend Micro, has already worked to explain that the exploit was included in 3 kits. These kits include collections of computer codes and tools that aide attackers in spreading the malicious software. Adobe now faces the facts; this hack could potentially effect and control their entire system. The Flash effected by the bug was Flash 18.0.0.194 for Windows, Macintosh, and Linux. The company is working with other organizations to quickly produce a “fix” to be issued to users with this older version of Flash.

Opinions are what make us different

Do you believe Adobe would have self-released information about the leak?
