Posted: February 5, 2014 05:25PM
Adobe released new versions of its Flash player software for Internet browsers today, due to vulnerabilities that were recently discovered by the software developer. The various vulnerabilities could possibly allow a hacker exploit an individual system and take control of the computer remotely, according to the Adobe Product Security Incident Response Team. Windows, Macintosh, and Linux operating systems are affected, though the priority rating assigned for Linux is lower than the both Windows and Macintosh, which received the highest rating possible for vulnerability exploitation. Additionally, users of Google Chrome and Internet Explorer are most at risk, with the version updates being pushed heavily to the two Internet browsers.
