Adobe has released security updates to address multiple vulnerabilities in Flash Player for Windows, Macintosh, and Linux. An attacker who successfully exploits some of these vulnerabilities could take control of an affected system.
Computing Services and Systems Development (CSSD) recommends that users review Adobe Security Bulletin APSB15-19 and apply the necessary updates.
In addition, CSSD also recommends that all users install Symantec Endpoint Protection software and use the LiveUpdate feature to get the latest virus definitions. As a complement to Symantec Endpoint Protection, CSSD offers a free version of Malwarebytes for individuals and departments. Students, faculty, and staff can download Malwarebytes and Symantec Endpoint Protection at no cost through the Software Download Service at My Pitt. Departments can submit a help request to obtain Malwarebytes for multiple machines.
