Adobe is warning Android handset and Windows, PC, Linux, and Solaris users out there about a new security hole in Flash 10.3. The glitch makes it possible for malware-infested sites to manipulate a users’ computer or Android device and run wild with it. If your device is infected, malicious sites could access other websites, use e-mail, and access applications. Adobe says there have been reports of targeted attacks through links in e-mails that are spreading the malware further.
Luckily there’s a simple fix. Adobe has told users to update Flash with its latest patch: Desktop users can visit this site and Android users should download it from the Android Market.
