Abode released a patch yesterday to address security vulnerabilities for the flash player. You can read the security bulletin here . Adobe categorizes these as critical issues and recommends affected users update their installations to the newest versions. All platforms are affected.
If you are a 64 bit Linux user you can download the update from Adobe here. I am a firefox user so upgrading was simply to download the libflashplayer-10.0.42.34.linux-x86_64.so.tar.gz , unpack it move the libflashplayer.so to ~/.mozilla/plugins/ overwrite if necessary and restart firefox if running. Update complete.
