Re: Adobe patch available 22Jan1025
Thanks, @Jon. I was about to post an update here about the patch. http://blogs.adobe.com/psirt/?p=1157

And here's Adobe's comment on the other possible 0day:

"Additionally, we are investigating a report that a separate exploit for Flash Player 16.0.0.287 and earlier versions also exists in the wild. Please continue to monitor this blog for updates."

Adobe patch available 22Jan1025
A week after the last Adobe Flash patch set, today 22Jan2015, Abobe released Flash patch sets for the new Flash Zero-Day, reported by Kafeine (& later confirmed by Malwarebytes) on 20Jan2015. The patch sets updated the Flash gereral release from 16.0.0.257 to 16.0.0.287, and Flash Extended Support Release [ESR] release from 13.0.0.260 to 13.0.0.262.


Adobe documentation for the update is, in general, not up to date as yet.  For example the corresponding the critiacl vulnerabilities "Security Bulletin APSB 15-02" has not been posted as of noon today.


Google Chrome was updated yesterday, but today a Google search for "13.0.0.262" returns "did not match any documents...", with DuckDuckGO search engine returning only one hit from a German "com-magazin" site.

Incorporating a Prevention Mindset into Threat Detection and Response
Threat detection and response systems, by definition, are reactive because they have to wait for damage to be done before finding the attack. With a prevention-mindset, security teams can proactively anticipate the attacker's next move, rather than reacting to specific threats or trying to detect the latest techniques in real-time. The report covers areas enterprises should focus on: What positive response looks like. Improving security hygiene. Combining preventive actions with red team efforts.
