As mentioned in our earlier bulletin, Adobe joins this month's edition of Microsoft's Patch Tuesday by rolling out a patch for a whopping nine vulnerabilities in the company's Flash Player software.

Four out of nine patches are considered critical so updating is a high priority if you want to avoid attacks. Six of the vulnerabilities could lead to remote code execution while another one could be exploited to capture keystrokes on the affected system. Another flaw could be exploited to leak memory addresses and there's also an update for a bug concerning improper file validation issues.
