Anyone that suggests that Adobe's Flash is a secure piece of technology hasn't ever used a PC. Period. So, it's amazing to me that we are a) still using it, and b) still allowing Adobe to distribute it. But, at least the company hasn't given up on updating it just yet. And, it takes some effort, considering Flash has to be patched regularly.
A new Flash vulnerability has surfaced, and Adobe has promised to deliver updates today.
The vulnerability is rated as critical and an exploit has already been published publicly. No platform is safe, either. Affected software and platforms:
Adobe Flash Player 18.104.22.168 and earlier versions for Windows and Macintosh
Adobe Flash Player Extended Support Release version 22.214.171.1246 and earlier 13.x versions for Windows and Macintosh
Adobe Flash Player 126.96.36.1998 and earlier 11.x versions for Linux

UPDATE: The updates are now available: Security updates available for Adobe Flash Player
