All of the flaws rated the highest severity for Windows, macOS and Chrome.

Adobe said Flash version 24.0.0.194 and earlier are vulnerable and that users should update immediately to 24.0.0.221.

To date, none of the flaws have suffered exploitation, Adobe said.

All vulnerabilities involve memory-related issues that would allow an attacker to execute code on the host system running Flash. Adobe said it patched four memory-corruption and four use-after-free bugs, along with type-confusion, integer overflow and heap buffer overflow vulnerabilities.
