According to the security bulletin page over at Adobe Support, the vulnerability is being exploited in the wild so Adobe has issued a security update for its Flash Player software that fixes two critical vulnerabilities in the widely-used program. At long last, this latest version also includes an auto-updating mechanism designed to streamline the deployment of Flash security fixes across multiple browsers. This does not mean that users who do not use Internet Explorer or work with different operating systems are safe from exploits, as the vulnerability exists on every system as well.

This is the third security update for Flash in the last six weeks. Flash Player v. 11.2 addresses a couple of bugs in Adobe Flash Player Adobe warns that these vulnerabilities could cause a crash and potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system. Adobe has traditionally deployed two separate installers for Windows based systems: One for Flash on Internet Explorer, and another for non-IE browsers. With the release of Flash Player 11.2, Adobe is introducing a new background update mechanism to help Windows users while updating. The new Adobe Flash Player background updater updates all instances of a release version of Adobe Flash programmer for all Web browsers on a computer. Previously, users had to perform separate updates for each Web browser running on their system. If a vulnerable version of Adobe Flash Player is on a system, you are asked to upgrade to the latest version as soon as possible to protect the system from possible exploits.

After the introduction of the new background updater, Windows users have the option to download and install updates for Adobe Flash Player automatically, without user interaction. After a successful installation of Adobe Flash Player 11.2, users are presented with a dialog box to choose an update method. The following three update options are available to users:

* Install updates automatically when available (recommended)
* Notify me when updates are available
* Never check for updates (not recommended)

Additionally, the user can change his update preferences at any time via the Flash Player Settings Manager, which for Windows users can be accessed via the Control Panel. In the Flash Player Settings Manager, the update preferences can be found and selected in the Advanced tab under Updates.
