US-Cert reports a critical vulnerability in Macromedia Flass Player may allow an
attacker to take control of a computer or cause it to crash if an attacker can convince any user to visit a
malicious web site.

Microsoft has issued a patch for Windows users who currently have Flash Player 6.0.79 or earlier installed :

Users who have upgraded to MFP 7 or above are advised to download and install the latest version of the Flash player:

Adobe recommends all Flash Player 8.0.22.0 and earlier users upgrade to the new version 8.0.24.0, which can be downloaded from the Player Download Center. For customers that cannot upgrade to Flash Player 8, please refer to the Flash Player 7 update TechNote.
