The integration of Adobe Flash Player 10.3 in the latest Google Chrome Stable release yesterday hinted already at the imminent release of the final version of Flash Player 10.3. This time, it took less than 24 hours; Adobe has enabled downloads for all supported operating systems, so that users can download and install Flash Player 10.3 on their computer systems.
We have covered all new features of Flash Player 10.3 when the first beta was released in March, and those information are still valid.
Adobe Flash Player 10.3.181.14 fixes several security issues, next to the new features that have been added by Adobe.
The vulnerabilities affect all supported operating systems and have received a critical rating by Adobe. Users are encouraged to update their version of Flash to the new release as soon as possible.
Critical vulnerabilities have been identified in Adobe Flash Player 10.2.159.1 and earlier versions (Adobe Flash Player 10.2.154.28 and earlier for Chrome users) for Windows, Macintosh, Linux and Solaris, and Adobe Flash Player 10.2.157.51 and earlier versions for Android. These vulnerabilities could cause the application to crash and could potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system. There are reports of malware attempting to exploit one of the vulnerabilities, CVE-2011-0627, in the wild via a Flash (.swf) file embedded in a Microsoft Word (.doc) or Microsoft Excel (.xls) file delivered as an email attachment targeting the Windows platform. However, to date, Adobe has not obtained a sample that successfully completes an attack. (via)
