Adobe patches Flash, but doesn't get around to Pwn2Own bug
Adobe today patched Flash Player, the fifth time this year it's updated the vulnerability-plagued software.
Unlike two of the three updates last month, however, today's was part of Adobe's regularly-scheduled patch cadence.
Last November, Adobe announced it would pair its Flash security updates with the monthly Patch Tuesday releases by partner Microsoft. Adobe has fixed Flash flaws on the second Tuesday of each month since then. The Flash update, designated APSB13-09, patched four critical vulnerabilities that included a use-after-free bug, integer and buffer overflows, and an unspecified memory corruption flaw. All could be used by attackers to execute malicious code, hack Flash and hijack a Windows PC or OS X-powered Mac.
