In this article “Adobe today warned that hackers are exploiting a critical vulnerability in its popular Flash Player program, and issued an emergency update to patch the bug.

“There are reports that the vulnerability is being exploited in the wild in active targeted attacks designed to trick the user into clicking on a malicious file delivered in an email message,” the Friday advisory said.

Although all editions of Flash Player contain the vulnerability and should be patched, the active exploit is targeting only users of Microsoft’s Internet Explorer (IE).”
