Adobe Systems Inc. issued an alert Wednesday, warning users of Flash Player on Linux systems that a vulnerability...

could allow an attacker to take control of an affected system.

Adobe Systems news:
Adobe hopes to speed patch releases with more transparency: Poor communication with security researchers fuels inefficiencies, the software maker said.

The flaw is in Adobe Flash Player for Linux 10.0.12.36 and Adobe Flash Player for Linux 9.0.151.0. An attacker could exploit the flaw by passing a malicious Shockwave flash SWF file. To correct the problem, Adobe issued a new version of its Flash Player for Linux.

Danish vulnerability clearinghouse, Secunia, gave the flaw a highly critical rating. Secunia said the flash player has a SWF processing error.

The issue does not affect the Macintosh or Windows versions of Flash Player, Adobe said.
