99% percent of all PC’s are wide open due to a security flaw in Adobe Flash

Just a few days ago Adobe issued a security bulletin http://www.adobe.com/support/security/advisories/apsa09-03.html rated as critical. Adobe say  “A critical vulnerability exists in the current versions of Flash Player”. There are reports that indicate that this vulnerability is being actively exploited, meaning any website can exploit and execute arbitrary code on your computer.

The scary thing is that Adobe flash player penetrates almost 99% http://www.adobe.com/products/player_census/flashplayer/ of all internet users, making practically all computers on the internet vulnerable. Adobe plan to come with a fix end of july.
