It’s out there – and you’re wide open to it
So it’s confirmed: the Adobe Flash vulnerability revealed in the Hacking Team hack is out in the wild being used, and there’s no patch yet. Flash users beware!
Two sources, Malwarebytes and Malware Don’t Need Coffee, have documented updates to theNeutrino exploit kit and Angler exploit kit, respectively. Both kits, which are installed on compromised websites by criminals to infect passing web surfers, now exploit the new Flash bug to execute malicious code on victims’ computers.
