Adobe today released a Shockwave Player security update.

"The company published APSB11-27 on Tuesday, providing fixes for four memory corruption vulnerabilities in versions of Shockwave Player for Windows and Apple Mac systems," writes Threatpost's Paul Roberts. "The patches affect Shockwave Player 11.6.1.629 and earlier versions of Shockwave, according to the published security bulletin."

"The vulnerabilities, if left unfixed, could allow remote attackers to run malicious code on Mac and Windows systems with Shockwave installed," Roberts writes.
