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."
