  • Patch Lady – Flash update out on June 7th

    Posted on June 7th, 2018 at 14:39 Susan Bradley Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    Be aware that today a Flash update has been released.  For those of you on Windows 7 you will need to either look to a prompt or go to the Adobe flash page for your update.  For those on 10, and 8.1 you get your update from Microsoft.

    Adobe is aware of a report that an exploit for CVE-2018-5002 exists in the wild, and is being used in limited, targeted attacks against Windows users. These attacks leverage Office documents with embedded malicious Flash Player content distributed via email.

    Generally speaking it’s wise to ensure these flash updates are installed as soon as possible.  Kirsty’s got the links for you here:
