Adobe posted a security advisory ( about a new 0-day vulnerability in Flash player. According to the post about this vulnerability (available at, Adobe says that they had reports of this new vulnerability being used in targeted attacks. These attacks seem to be particularly sneaky – the Flash exploit is embedded in an Excel file which is also used to setup memory so the exploit has a higher chance of succeeding.

We will keep an eye on this and if the 0-day starts being used in the wild. If you have more information that you can share about this let us know.
