Adobe Flash Player update, RSA further notification and Play.com breach


Adobe Flash Player update addresses a critical security issue (CVE-2011-0609):

http://www.adobe.com/support/security/bulletins/apsb11-05.html


RSA have released a further list of recommendations to their customers of security best practices via email. No further information on the actual breach.


And finally, the www.play.com, a large on-line retailer, has had a security breach. Some customer names and email addresses may have been compromised from a 3rd part company that handles part of their marketing. Emails notification have been sent out to existing customers.

Thank you to those readers for writing in with these updates.

And Adobe Air gets updated too.

Speaking of Air, can anybody explain to me why it doesn't get its own Bulletin? I think this is the second time its been hidden in a Flash Security Bulletin. It is separate program, with a separate install, but doesn't rate it's own bulletin? I don't understand.
