[German]Adobe released a security update for the Flash Player on September 12, 2017 and released patches for other Adobe products. Microsoft and Google also released security and browser updates to fixe vulnerabilities.
Adobe Flash Player version 22.214.171.124 (Sep. 2017)
In Adobe Flash Player (up to version 126.96.36.199.151) there are two critical memory overflow flaws. Adobe has released the Security Bulletin APSB17-28 to address this security issue. Here are details about vulnerable Flash player versions:
|Adobe Flash Player Desktop Runtime||188.8.131.52 and earlier||Windows, Macintosh and Linux|
|Adobe Flash Player for Google Chrome||184.108.40.206 and earlier||Windows, Macintosh, Linux and Chrome OS|
|Adobe Flash Player for Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer 11||220.127.116.11 and earlier||Windows 10 and 8.1|
Updates to Adobe Flash Player version 18.104.22.168 are available from Adobe. If you have installed the Flash Player yourself and activated its auto-update, you should receive the update automatically.
The same applies to Windows 8.1 and Windows 10, where the update KB4038806 has been rolled out by Microsoft on September 12,2017. Also in Google Chrome the Flash Player should be updated by the browser. The manual update only affects users who have installed Flash manually (e. g. under Windows 7 or Linux or Mac OS) and where the auto-update does not work.
Which Flash Player version is installed?
The installed Flash version can be checked on this Adobe website. There you can see if the Flash-Player is supported in the browser, which version is used and which version is available for update at Adobe.
If you update the Flash Player via this Adobe page, make sure that the optional offered PUP (McAfee Security Scan Plus and True Key from Intel) are not installed with the update. Direct download links for the Flash player can be found at ComputerBase.
ColdFusion and RoboHelp
Adobe has also released update for ColdFusion and RoboHelp editor. Details to ColdFusion may be found here and RoboHelp is described here (update from September 2, 2017).
