Just to clarify, according to the Adobe bulletin, Linux versions prior to AND INCLUDING are impacted. Adobe suggests installing "Flash Player" to mitigate the vulnerability.
Wow, 2nd out of band patch for Flash in less than a month and near monthly security updates for ages now. One would think Adobe would take some pride, set down and do some serious code review at some point.

Really, I have about 50 customers and it's getting REALLY old applying 2-3 patches a MONTH just to keep up.
Is it possible that IE use after free vuln is related? Chrome also updated yesterday with a use after free related to web content fix among others. Or is it just coincidence?
