Ransomware Alert: Patch Your Flash Player Now

ransomware alert

The magnitude exploit kit has been successfully exploiting a recent dangerous Adobe Flash Player vulnerability (CVE-2015-3113) on IE11 in Windows 7 since Saturday, malware researcher Kafeine warns.

The vulnerability was patched four days ago. If you are using Adobe Flash Player, update it as soon as possible.

Kafeine says Magnitude attackers are using the exploit to drop the Cryptowall ransomware onto unsuspecting users.

"CVE-2015-3113 has been spotted as a zero day by FireEye, exploited in limited targeted attacks. It's now making its path to exploit kits," he says.

If you don't have much use of Flash Player, remove it completely from your machine to avoid exploitation.
