Establishing Digital Trust: Don't Sacrifice Security for Convenience
Adobe has fixed a security flaw in Adobe Flash that attackers could use to spy on victims via their webcam and microphone.
"Normally, cameras and microphones are disabled, and only users can turn them on," The H Security reports. "To trick users into enabling them, attackers can present a simple clicking game on a specially crafted web site."
"Adobe has now fixed the problem with an update to the Flash Player settings file hosted on Adobe's web servers," the article states. "Users do not need to update their Flash Player installations."
