Not Another Flash Zero-Day Exploit!


Even patched versions of the porous multimedia tool succumb in the latest attack.

Researchers at Trend Micro say they have discovered yet another zero-day Adobe Flash exploit. The once-popular Flash technology has been the subject of several serious attacks in the past year, and some browsers are actually starting to disable it by default because of security issues.

The latest attack, by the espionage group Pawn Storm, targets government foreign affairs offices around the world and appears to have been launched through email phishing messages.
