We’ve been watching the unfolding train wreck that is Adobe Flash for the last week or so. Multiple vulnerabilities have been followed with patches and yet more vulnerabilities. It has become apparent that Flash is simply too dangerous to allow it to run on your computer. At this point, we strongly recommend that you uninstall Flash on your computer. For more information, see the US CERT notice that came out yesterday.
We can not stress enough how exposed the use of Adobe Flash is leaving your network. There are several attack vectors that are possible (including web pages, emails, and Word files) if you have Flash enabled on any of the machines on your network.
Note: Some software, eg. Quickbooks Merchant Services, requires you to use Flash. If this is the case, you will need to be fanatic about keeping Flash up to date in order to minimize the risk.
