Fixes for critical Flash bugs released by Adobe

Adobe has just released patches for a trio of critical vulnerabilities in Flash Player that could allow hackers access into Windows, Mac OS X, as well as Linux systems.

An edition of Flash Player sans the fixed problems — dubbed Version 9,0,47,0 — can be downloaded directly from the Adobe Web site. All updates, including for older versions of Flash, can be downloaded here.

According to Network World:

The last time Flash Player was patched was April, when Adobe repaired the Linux and Solaris plug-ins used with the Opera and Konqueror browsers.
