Adobe has patched a critical security flaw in Flash Player 10.1, closing a gap that could have allowed an attacked to gain access to your phone. Version 10.1.95.1 fixes the following:
A critical vulnerability exists in Adobe Flash Player 10.1.82.76 and earlier versions for Windows, Macintosh, Linux, and Solaris, and Adobe Flash Player 10.1.92.10 for Android. ... This vulnerability (CVE-2010-2884) could cause a crash and potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system.
Props to Adobe for turning around the fix less than a week after the vulnerability was announced. Now we can all tend to our Farmville farms without worry. [Adobe]
