This morning I read an article in USA Today that discussed a serious security vulnerability in Adobe Flash Player and Adobe Acrobat Reader. Hackers have been setting up Web sites containing “corrupt” adobe files. When these files are loaded, they allow a bot to be installed onto the victim’s computer. As of right now no fixes are available, but Adobe is trying to produce a fix by Friday.
