Homeland Security Issues Vulnerability Notice – Adobe Flash (Nat. Terror Alert, 7/26/09)

Adobe Flash contains a vulnerability that may allow a remote, unauthenticated attacker to execute arbitrary code on a vulnerable system. Adobe Flash Player, Reader, Acrobat, and other products that include Flash support are affected. By convincing a user to view a specially crafted HTML document (e.g., a web page or an HTML email message or attachment) or a PDF file, an attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code.

Until Adobe is able to offer a patch (expected later this week) US-CERT is recommending you disable Flash or selectively enable Flash content.
