Not only does Flash refuse to die, but it’s still creating trouble well into 2014. A new critical security error has been discovered that might be exploited to steal user data, Android Central reports.
Although the bug was well-known among security professionals, it seems no-one bothered to find a fix until Google engineer Michele Spagnuolo created an exploit tool that steals cookies and user data by way of malicious .SFW files.
Rosetta Flash, as Spagnuolo named her hack tool, can be found here. After she published it, major web players like Microsoft, Google, Instagram, and Twitter rushed to roll out patches that would rectify the issue.
As for you, esteemed reader, fear not: if you’re reading this on Chrome or Internet Explorer (if it’s the latter: why?), the browser should automatically update itself to the latest version of Flash, which is 14.0.0145. Firefox users should download the latest update manually from Adobe’s website.
