Chrome updated to address Flash player issue

Google (http://macte.ch/vlqmD) has updated its Chrome 10 browser for the third time this month with the release of Chrome 10.0.648.134 for Mac, Windows and Linux and Chrome Frame, reports “eSecurity Planet” (http://macte.ch/sYgkn).

Chrome 10.0.648.134 is being issued to fix a single issue. It provides an updated Adobe Flash player that fixes a zero day vulnerability that is already being exploited in the wild.

Google’s Chrome browser includes an integrated Flash player, which is something that no other browser vendor provides. Additionally Chrome is getting the Adobe Flash fix before even Adobe issues a public fix for all users, says “eSecurity Planet.” Adobe issued a security advisory earlier this week, warning of a critical vulnerability in Flash Player 10.2.152.33 and earlier versions.
