Today February 10, Microsoft released a new security patch for Adobe Flash Player to cope with modernization. The patch, coded KB4074595, has been designed to fix a zero-day vulnerability in Adobe Flash Player.

Microsoft Adobe Flash Version

The vulnerability existed in previous versions of Microsoft Adobe Flash Player. Online attackers can spread MS Office documents with malicious Flash content via mail or other online platforms. It may lead them to have system control and execute random codes.

All operating systems except Windows 7 are reported to be affected by the glitch. It was discovered in November 2017. South Korea has been trying to control it since then to keep up with research cooperation with North Korea.

Adobe acknowledges the faulty and recommends that users immediately upgrade to its latest version or update to the Microsoft new patch.
