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.

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."
