Adobe's Flash plug-in is the gift that keeps on giving. There's a new update out today that plugs a whopping 79 security holes in the popular plug-in. As always, users are recommended to upgrade asap as Flash bugs may provide a nice attack vector to infect your PC.
The update covers Flash Player version and earlier for Windows and OS X, and version and earlier for Linux. Perhaps more interestingly, the Chrome and Edge versions of the Flash player are also getting these fixes today. This massive security update for the software comes hot on the heels of the company's November update, which patched 17 vulnerabilities. Adobe also fixed 23 holes in September and 35 in August.
