Flash Player vulnerable to bug patched in 2011

2015/03/23

Softpedia - (International) Security researchers from Minded Security and LinkedIn's security division discovered that the latest versions of Adobe's Flash Player Web browser plug-in are vulnerable to a same-origin bypass (SOP) flaw in the company's Flex SDK compiler that was patched in 2011, which could allow attackers to steal victims' data via Same-Origin Request Forgery or perform actions on behalf of victims via Cross-site Request Forgery (CSRF) asking them to visit a malicious Web page.
