Flash Player 9 Security Vunerability Watch The Demo
Now update your player…
Wow! Thanks for the detailed walk through. This is a serious issue. Any idea if this is patched for FP 10?
The content in this post is not mine 🙂 props go to SkillTube for their hard work!
As far as i have heard this is fixed in FP10 but that’s in no way confirmed…
FP 10, AIR 1.5 and FP 9.0.151 are safe against these attacks. See http://www.adobe.com/support/security/#flashplayer for latest security bulletins.
Also, if you want to keep up to date on Adobe security issues, then subscibe to Adobe PSIRT team blog at http://blogs.adobe.com/psirt/, I’ve found this to be the fastest way to learn about new security issues with Flash Player (or any other Adobe product).
I am pretty sure this was patched in 9.0.124. In any case, upgrading to the newest version is probably recommended for other reasons too.
This was patched in 9.0.151, and every player released since. This exploit was announced in May of this year, and while there were no major reported incidents of the exploit, it did effect the older player.
Kind of funny/ironic the xp pro used in the demo was in need of a windows uptdate itself.
