Macromedia Flash has critical vulnerability

A new vulnerability has been found in Flash Player version 7.0.19.0 and earlier, for which there is now a patch. Users of Flash should check to see if they need to upgrade to avoid being compromised. The flaw is classified as critical, and was confirmed by the firm on Friday. Users should upgrade to version 8.0.22.0 to avoid problems.

"There was a problem with bounds validation for indexes of certain arrays in Flash Player 7 and earlier, thus leaving open the possibility that a third party could inject unauthorised code that would have been executed by Flash Player," Macromedia warned.
