Adobe Flash, the veteran media player that has earned a name for itself due to its security vulnerabilities as much as its abilities, is back in the news - but this time, for a good reason. Adobe has revealed that it worked with Google's Project Zero to patch the vulnerabilities discovered in the aftermath of a security breach of the Hacking Team.
Earlier this week an exploit for Adobe Flash was revealed -- a shock, I know. Now a second is in the wild and already being used. Known by the catchy name CVE-2015-5122, security firm FireEye discovered the flaw buried in the Hacking Team leak and alerted Adobe to it.
Adobe patches a Flash zero-day vulnerability found as part of the massive data breach of Hacking Team. Experts recommend speedy remediation as the flaw has been added to multiple exploit kits.
The massive Hacking Team data breach led to the release of 400GB worth of data including a zero-day vulnerability for Adobe Flash. Adobe has released an out-of-band patch for the flaw just two days after it was discovered.
Adobe Systems released an emergency security update for Flash Player Tuesday to fix a critical vulnerability that has been exploited by a China-based cyberespionage group.
Over the past several weeks, a hacker group identified as APT3 by security firm FireEye has used the vulnerability to attack organizations from the aerospace, defense, construction, engineering, technology, telecommunications and transportation industries.
Adobe has launched a bug bounty program that hands out high-fives, not cash.
The web application vulnerability disclosure program announced today and launched last month operates through HackerOne used by the likes of Twitter, Yahoo!, and CloudFlare, some of which provide cash or other rewards to those who disclose security messes.
