Adobe Flash Player APSB12-07 - 28 March 2012

Adobe released a critical update today for Flash Player.  

The basic gist is that most of the platforms are exposed to a crash and a remote attacker can get potential control of your system.  Details elude to memory corruption as the cause, which are patched with this update.
 

Another, highlight is that this update comes with an auto-update feature for the Flash player.  The link below seems to only cite this feature for Window's users.  I've not had a chance to hit my OS X systems with this update, so I can not confirm whether it reaches the Mac.   Post a comment and tell us this new whistle.
