Adobe also has published updates today for Flash Player, resolving CVE-2013-5331 and CVE-2013-5332.

The versions will vary from platform to platform, but if you are running Flash Player you should update soon (today if possible).

Shockwave Player also sees an update today, addressing CVE-2013-5333 and CVE-2013-5334 on the Windows and Mac platforms.  With this update applied, both platforms should be at version

Another issue is patch deployment of exploit.. SANS 301... fix was not out yet and I am running Adobe's latest version. DL Qualys.. auto update.. 3 flavors... I deployed through the whole company where WSUS could not hit in remote areas.

As I was typing this.. updated...
Adobe Air is also released. it appears that none of the security sites track this. The new version is
