According to Anton Ivanov and Kaspersky's Costin Raiu, vulnerability is already being used in targeted attacks.

The vulnerability identifier registered for this zero-day is CVE-2016-4171, and Adobe reports that it affects both Flash Player 21.0.0.242 and earlier versions running on Windows, Macintosh, Linux and Chrome OS.

Flash Player 21.0.0.242 is the latest version of the company. This means that zero-day affects all Flash-based systems.

The vulnerability helps an attacker crash a Flash Rlayer installation in an unsafe manner, which then allows him to run malicious code on the victim's system and take charge of its management.

If you are using Flash Player, immediately disable the application, or plugin, until at least the Adobe ch patch is released…
