Critical Flash Player Security Update

Adobe Flash Player was released today to address what Adobe characterizes as a critical security issue:

An input validation error has been identified in Flash Player and earlier versions that could lead to the potential execution of arbitrary code. This vulnerability could be accessed through content delivered from a remote location via the user’s web browser, email client, or other applications that include or reference the Flash Player.


BTW, doesn't look like the prerelease of Flash Player 9 Update 3 ( has been updated, so if you are testing the public beta, you might want to limit your testing to trusted content until these security measures can be rolled into a new beta build.
