Adobe gives advance warning that it's planning to release a critical security update for Flash tomorrow. The bug potentially allows attackers to take remote control of affected systems. Attackers are actively exploiting the bug on systems running Windows 7 and XP in combination with Flash Player version 20.0.0.306. Users running Flash Player 21.0.0.182 or later should be safer as this version introduced a mitigation technique but a real fix isn't expected until Thursday at the earliest.
A critical vulnerability (CVE-2016-1019) exists in Adobe Flash Player 21.0.0.197 and earlier versions for Windows, Macintosh, Linux, and Chrome OS. Successful exploitation could cause a crash and potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system.

Adobe is aware of reports that CVE-2016-1019 is being actively exploited on systems running Windows 7 and Windows XP with Flash Player version 20.0.0.306 and earlier. A mitigation introduced in Flash Player 21.0.0.182 currently prevents exploitation of this vulnerability, protecting users running Flash Player 21.0.0.182 and later.

Adobe is planning to provide a security update to address this vulnerability as early as April 7.
