No Security Fixes in Patch Tuesday Updates for Flash Player

No Security Fixes in Patch Tuesday Updates for Flash Player (Malware and Vulnerabilities)

The Patch Tuesday updates released this month by Adobe for Flash Player include no security fixes. In Experience Manager, Adobe patched several stored and reflected cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities that can result in the disclosure of sensitive information. In October 2017, Adobe released no Patch Tuesday updates, but one week later it issued an emergency fix for Flash Player to resolve a zero-day vulnerability that had been exploited in targeted attacks by a Middle Eastern threat actor. The number of vulnerabilities found by researchers in Flash Player has decreased significantly after Adobe announced its intention to kill the application by 2020, but malicious actors are still looking for flaws they can exploit in their operations.
