It seems that Adobe has slipped some additional content into its latest round of security patches.
Users and administrators were already aware that the company would be posting a security update for its Shockwave and Flash components as well, building on what is already a sizeable stack of security fixes.
The update will fix a single, but critical, vulnerability in Flash which could allow an attacker to crash and take control of a targeted Windows, Linux, OS X or Solaris box.
The update fixes the second zero-day vulnerability in Flash in as many weeks, after a cross-site-scripting flaw uncovered earlier this month.
The Shockwave update, meanwhile, will patch 25 CVE flaws for Windows and OS X machines. The flaws may not be as high profile as the Flash vulnerability, but are still classified as 'critical'. Adobe noted that a successful exploit could allow an attacker to remotely execute code on a targeted system.
This will add to an already sizeable workload for many administrators, after Microsoft issued a hefty monthly update that included 16 security bulletins.
