Quick Update your Adobe Flash Player before it’s too late
An immediate patch has been release for both MAC and Windows users of Adobe Flash Player which patches a vulnerability that could allow hackers to remotely control of user’s computers.
“This vulnerability could allow an attacker to remotely take control of the affected system,” Adobe wrote in a blog post.
Yesterday I notice this notification signaling me to update my flash player which a bit weird because usually adobe just prompt of you want to update but this time you cannot proceed with what you are doing like on my end while I am on a Google Chrome Browser and watching a YouTube video I notice that it won’t playback the video unless I update my Adobe Flash Player.
So I usually skipped that because it is annoying but again this time it just won’t skip I really need to update but then after updating it just worked well as usual so the main reason for that is the vulnerability patch update which is I think very important for users.
