Abobe has just released an emergency update to their ubiquitous Flash Player software to plug a serious security hole that could easily grant hackers total control of your computer.
It’s obvious that Flash has become a favorite target for hackers in recent years, and the engineers at Adobe have their hands full trying to combat the nearly constant threats.
This update fixes a very serious flaw, and keeping the bad code running on your system would be an open invitation for hackers to walk right in. I recommend updating your Flash Player right now. The update is free and easily accessible on the official Flash Player download page.
Tip: If you can’t get the Flash Player update to install for some reason, try un-installing the copy that’s already on your system first, then install it from scratch from the download page.
Bonus tip: It’s a good idea to keep ALL of your PC’s software up to date, including your apps. And don’t forget about Windows itself (run Windows Update often) and your anti-malware programs (set them to update their definition files automatically).
