Another zero day Flash exploit

12 December 2011 3,132 views No Comment

Bang the drum. Adobe Flash consumes a lot of resources and is insecure, and here’s the latest proof of that. A Russian security research firm has developed an exploit and have demonstrated it in a video.

Researcher Legerov has made their discovery public and the US Computer Emergency Readiness Team have issue warnings thereupon. To date, only a Windows version of the exploit has been created, but Legerov says an OS X compatible iteration is coming.

Thereupon, if you’re fed up with Adobe’s malevolent multimedia middleware, here’s how to uninstall Flash. Alternately, if you need Flash, here’s how to download, install and setup Flash.

Personally, I have Flash installed, but keep it on a tight leash with the ClickToFlash Safari extension.
