Adobe has released Version 28.0.0.161 of Adobe Flash Player.  These updates address critical vulnerabilities that could lead to remote code execution in Adobe Flash Player 28.0.0.137 and earlier versions.  Successful exploitation could potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system.

In particular, the update addresses CVE-2018-4878 which exists in the wild, and is being used in limited, targeted attacks against Windows users.  These attacks leverage Office documents with embedded malicious Flash content distributed via email. Also included in the update are functional fixes.

Release date:  February 6, 2018
Vulnerability identifier: APSB18--03
Platform:  Windows, Macintosh, Linux and Chrome OS

Update:
*Important Note:  Downloading the update from the Adobe  Flash Player Download Center  link includes a pre-checked option to install unnecessary extras,  such  as McAfee Scan Plus or Google Drive.  If you use the download  center,  uncheck any unnecessary extras that you do not want.  They are not  needed for the Flash Player update.

I just hope security issues with Progressive Web Apps won't make us look fondly at Flash.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. ~C. S. Lewis
