From their Security Bulletin "Adobe has released security updates for Adobe Flash Player 11.3.300.271 and earlier versions for Windows, Macintosh and Linux, Adobe Flash Player and earlier versions for Android 4.x, and Adobe Flash Player and earlier versions for Android 3.x and 2.x. These updates address vulnerabilities that could cause a crash and potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system." Fixes the following CVE entries: CVE-2012-4163, CVE-2012-4164, CVE-2012-4165, CVE-2012-4166, CVE-2012-4167, CVE-2012-4168. It appears as though Adobe is going for a weekly update cycle.
