Adobe has released a patch for a flaw in the Flex SDK that could enable cross-site scripting attacks.

"Adobe is recommending that Flex users update their vulnerable versions of the framework as soon as possible and then go through the process of determining whether any apps built with those Flex releases are vulnerable," writes Threatpost's Dennis Fisher.

"The company has produced a technical note that explains how to check whether apps built with Flex include vulnerable SWF files," Fisher writes. "Once a user has determined that an app is vulnerable she has two options: repair the app or patch Flex and then rebuild the app."
