It seems others are following Microsoft’s lead in releasing collections of patches in one roll up event.
This past Tuesday Adobe posted security updates for four of their products and it looks like three were labeled critical, one was important and the updates address 44 separate issues across all four programs.
Here is a summary of each release:
Today, a Security Bulletin (APSB11-02) has been posted to address critical security issues in Adobe Flash Player. This Security Bulletin affects Flash Player version 10.1.102.64 and earlier versions for Windows, Macintosh, Linux, and Solaris. Adobe recommends users apply the updates for their product installations.
A Security Bulletin (APSB11-01) was posted today addressing critical security issues in Adobe Shockwave Player. Adobe recommends users of Adobe Shockwave Player 184.108.40.2065 and earlier versions update to Adobe Shockwave Player 220.127.116.110 using the instructions provided in the Security Bulletin.
Today, a Security Bulletin (APSB11-03) has been posted in regards to this quarter’s security updates for Adobe Reader and Acrobat. The updates address critical security issues in the products. Adobe recommends that users apply the updates for their product installations.
I do like seeing companies being even more open and proactive with getting these security updates out to the end users.
