Adobe warns of Flash zero-day, patch to come next week – Naked Security


It’s like 1998 all over again!

OK, perhaps it would be fairer to say that it’s like 2008 all over again…

…there’s a zero-day security hole in Adobe Flash.

In APSA18-01, Adobe’s first Flash Security Advisory of the year, the company warns:

Adobe is aware of a report that an exploit for CVE-2018-4878 exists in the wild, and is being used in limited, targeted attacks against Windows users. These attacks leverage Office documents with embedded malicious Flash content distributed via email.
