Multiple Vulnerabilities in Adobe Flash Player Could Allow for Code Execution

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Adobe Flash Player, the most severe of which could allow for code execution. Adobe Flash Player is a widely distributed multimedia and application player used to enhance the user experience when visiting web pages or reading email messages. Successful exploitation of the most severe of these vulnerabilities could result in the attacker gaining control of the affected system.

Depending on the privileges associated with this application, an attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights. If this application has been configured to have fewer user rights on the system, exploitation of the most severe of these vulnerabilities could have less impact than if it was configured with administrative rights.

Please be sure to update your systems. Reference: https://helpx.adobe.com/security/products/flash-player/apsb17-10.html
