As expected, Adobe Systems Inc. issued a security bulletin repairing 32 vulnerabilities in Flash Player.

Adobe on Thursday released a security bulletin to patch 32 vulnerabilities in Flash Player, including a critical flaw that antivirus companies have seen being exploited in the wild.

The vulnerabilities could allow an attacker to take control of a system, Adobe warned.

The company recommended that all users with Flash Player 10.0.45.2 and earlier versions upgrade to the newest version, Flash Player 10.1.53.64. Adobe AIR 1.5.3.9130 and earlier versions for Windows, Macintosh and Linux are also affected and the company recommended that users update to Adobe AIR 2.0.2.12610.

The critical flaw that is being exploited in the wild also affects Adobe Reader and Acrobat; Adobe plans to provide a security update for those products on June 29.
