Deploy Adobe Flash Critical Patch

Adobe released a critical security patch for Adobe Flash. This affects both the Plugin (for Firefox, Safari and Opera) and the ActiveX (Internet Explorer) installations of Flash Player.

According to Adobe’s security bulletin: “These updates address vulnerabilities that could potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system. Adobe is aware of reports that an exploit for CVE-2014-0502 exists in the wild, and recommends users update their product installations to the latest versions.”

These vulnerabilities are patched in Flash Player 12.0.0.70. You can deploy Flash Player to your Windows computers using PDQ Deploy.

To download the new Flash packages simply go to the Package Library (in PDQ Deploy) and select Adobe Flash (this is Plugin) and/or Adobe Flash for IE. You may notice another package called Adobe Flash (All IE). This package includes Flash IE from Adobe as well as the Microsoft Flash patches for Windows 8 and 8.1.
