Adobe Flash, Shockwave, and Breeze Might Allow System Compromise
Critical vulnerabilities were discovered in Adobe Flash Player, Shockwave Player, and Breeze that could allow a remote intruder to take complete control of an affected system. The exact cause of the vulnerability hasn’t been disclosed at this time, but an intruder could exploit the weakness by causing the user’s browser to load a malicious Flash file (.swf). Adobe recommends that users upgrade to the latest version of the products (see the first URL below). Information on workarounds, including one to prevent Flash files from loading into the browser, is available from Microsoft (second URL below).
