Adobe-Patches are out

acrobat_logoAs announced, Adobe released the first updates for the critical security vulnerabilities in its products already. The first update is for Adobe Flash-Player – the new version is supposed to close the security hole in the software. You can get it via Adobes web site.

During the day, Adobe wants to release further patches for Adobe Reader and Acrobat. Also, a new version of the Shockwave-Player is already available. Please install the updated versions as soon as possible.

Let me thank all the hardworking administrators out there at this place, especially the Avira admins. They have to roll out all these updates today and already had a busy week due to Microsoft’s out-of-band updates from Tuesday. Don’t forget, it’s System Administrator Appreciation day!
