Adobe flash bug exploitation report.
Recently, a report on flash player bug that was confirmed by Adobe has alarmed Gmail users as there are hackers who used this current error in the operating system to steal away important credentials.
Apparently, the exploitation on flash player bug happens when a deceitful email message has been sent into an account and the deceived user might have opened the suspicious email. Further reports have stated that this bug is a cross-scripted bug, one which is famously used by hackers who caused the stealing of identities by using in malicious manner the passwords and usernames that has been used by a user to enter into a browser.
Good thing, Adobe made an immediate response by updating Adobe flash player on Windows, Linux, Mac OS X. At the very least moment they were able to do something to avoid bigger damage.
It was not the first time that reports such as this came to our hearing. For the last months we’ve already receive warnings on prevalent incidents on bugs that has been intentionally created to commit digital theft.
There are already many Google users that have been a victim for this felonious act.
The thing that bothers me most is Google’s recent allegations on some Chinese men, accusing them as hackers who are sneaking on the Gmail accounts of U.S. government officials. Although, China is denying all the allegations that Google is throwing against those Chinese fellow, the FBI is going to look into the details of these charges and investigate deeper on this alleged identity thieves.
