Adobe has posted an update to address vulnerabilities in its Flash Player media platform.
The company said that the patch would address flaws in all versions of its online media playing tool, including Flash Player for Android 4.0.
Among the issues addressed in the update were flaws which could be exploited by an attacker to cause a denial of service and vulnerabilities which, if targeted, could allow for remote code execution.
Adobe is advising all OS X, Windows and Linux users to update their software in order to obtain the most recent version of Flash Player. For Windows and OS X users the patched version will be 11.5.502.110, while Linux users should install version 188.8.131.52.
Additionally, Adobe has released fixes for Android users running versions 2.x, 3.x and 4.x of the mobile platform. For devices running Android 2.x and 3.x, the updated version of the media plug-in will be 184.108.40.206, while users running Android 4.x should install Flash player 220.127.116.11.
The company has also posted an update for its AIR platform to address the security vulnerabilities. The company said that users running versions 18.104.22.16810 and earlier on Windows and OS X, as well as those running the SDK for Android and iOS should update their copies of AIR to obtain the patches.
Adobe's release comes exactly one week before Microsoft is set to release the next edition of its monthly security update package. Microsoft is slated to provide advance notification and basic descriptions of the updates later this week.
