Slow day on the computer, and maybe it seems like a good idea to kill some time with some random flash game? Be very careful where you click today; there is a brand new flash vulnerability out there and it is spreading. Slashdot offers some advice on avoiding the issue, some of it actually useful, and provides a link to more info on the vulnerability.
""Security researchers have found evidence of a previously unknown Adobe Flash vulnerability being exploited in the wild. The
zero-day flaw has been added to the Chinese version of the MPack exploit kit and there are signs that the exploits are being
injected into third-party sites to redirect targets to malware-laden servers. From the article: 'Continued investigation
reveals this issue is fairly widespread. Malicious code is being injected into other third-party domains (approximately 20,000
web pages) most likely through SQL-injection attacks. The code then redirects users to sites hosting malicious Flash files
exploiting this issue."
