If you were using your Mac this week end, you probably noticed an update of Adobe Flash. This update removed a zero-day bug in Flash, meaning that it was discovered because hackers were already using it.
The breach is now closed with Flash Player version 126.96.36.199, now preventing what hackers usually do, introduce malicious code allowing to remotely control a computer. We are still waiting for more details about the extend of the control that was allowed to those hackers.
Of course, if you see the update coming up, we advise you to install it as soon as possible since hackers are now attacking Mac users that still too often wrongly feel invulnerable to any kind of attack.
