Done Update Adobe Flash on your system right now By Chris Smith 9 hours ago 0 shares View photo Update Adobe Flash on your system right now Adobe on Tuesday issued a critical security update to patch a vulnerability that could help hackers take control of computers after users visit various sites, CNET reports. Security blogger Michele Spagnuolo, who detailed the security exploit, says the Flash issue can be used by hackers to steal cookies that authenticate users on thousands of websites. Adobe has released security updates for Adobe Flash Player 14.0.0.125 and earlier versions for Windows and Macintosh and Adobe Flash Player 11.2.202.378 and earlier versions for Linux, Adobe wrote. These updates address vulnerabilities that could potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system. Adobe recommends users update their product installations to the latest versions. Among the websites that may have been targeted by hackers aware of the security flaw, Spagnuolo mentioned Google services (including Accounts, Google.com Books, Maps, YouTube and others), Twitter, eBay, Instagram, Tumblr and others. Of them, Google, Tumblr and Twitter have already fixed the issues on their websites, with other expected to take similar actions in the near future. While its not clear if the newly found Flash security flaw has affected anyone, users are still advised to update Flash on their systems immediately.

They said he confessed to the crime after he was tracked down via his victim’s mobile phone. Wanchai sold the girl’s phone to a shop owner in Bangkok, who took a copy of his I.D. which was later passed to police. Police said Wanchai admitted carrying the sleeping child to another carriage where he raped and strangled her, before throwing her lifeless body out the window as the train passed through the Pranburi District in Prachuabkirikan Province. Wanchai has been charged with murder, rape of a child under 15 years old and theft, police said. He faces possible execution for the murder charge, but activists are using the case to call for tougher charges for child rape, which currently carries a jail term of four to 20 years and a fine of up to 40,000 baht ($1,200).
