Adobe warned on Thursday that attackers are exploiting a previously unknown security hole in its Flash Player software to break into Microsoft Windows computers. Adobe said it plans to issue a fix for the flaw in the next few days, but now might be a good time to check your exposure to this still-ubiquitous program and harden your defenses. Adobe said a critical vulnerability (CVE-2018-4878) exists in Adobe Flash Player 188.8.131.52 and earlier versions. Successful exploitation could potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system.
