Adobe issued an emergency patch for Flash overnight to fix a security hole that’s already being actively used in the wild. CVE-2016-1010, which an attacker could use to execute code on your machine, is being used in “targeted attacks,” according to Adobe.
The good news is there’s an update that you can get already – or you might already have it, if you turned on automatic updates.
The bad news? Well, it actually affects more than just Flash, extending to Adobe AIR, AIR for Android, Flash Player for Linux and a number of other clients.
