(LiveHacking.Com) – Adobe has released a set of security updates for its Flash Player. The update applies to the Windows, Linux and OS X operating systems as well as to Android. The updates address vulnerabilities that, if exploited, could cause a crash and allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code.
There are three distinct bugs fixed. The first is a buffer overflow vulnerability, the second an integer overflow vulnerability and the last a memory corruption vulnerability. All three could lead to code execution.
