This one fell between the cracks yesterday. Adobe released one bulletin yesterday for patch Tuesday [1]. The update fixes two vulnerabilities in Adobe's Shockwave player.

All versions of Shockwave Player prior to are vulnerable and Adobe assigned this patch a priority rating of 1, indicating that the vulnerability has already been exploited in targeted attacks.

Does anything still use Shockwave? I can't remember having it installed on any systems I manage in probably five years. Even then, it was only for a couple "educational game" websites that were used by only a handful of teachers in one school district.
