"Stealth" Update for Flash from Adobe, (Sat, Jan 24th)

Adobe apparently just released Flash version 16.0.0.296. There is nothing on Adobes website if this is a patch. As a matter of fact, Adobe still lists 16.0.0.287 as the most recent version [1]. You can download 16.0.0.296 if you manually check for updates using Flash.

This article will be updates as we learn more. I have NO IDEA if this new version fixes the current vulnerability, but given that this is a surprise weekend release, chances are that it was released in response to the vulnerability. Apply this update at your own risk.

Thanks to Christopher for noticing!
