Multiple Vulnerabilities in Adobe Flash Player Could Allow Remote Code Execution (APSB15-32)
MS-ISAC ADVISORY NUMBER:2015-146
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Adobe Flash Player. Adobe Flash Player is a widely distributed multimedia and application player used to enhance the user experience when visiting web pages or reading email messages.
Successful exploitation could result in an attacker compromising data security, potentially allowing access to confidential data, or could compromise processing resources in a user's computer. Failed exploit attempts will likely cause denial-of-service conditions.
There are currently no reports of these vulnerabilities being exploited in the wild.

Successful exploitation of these vulnerabilities could result in an attacker gaining the same privileges as the logged on user. Depending on the privileges associated with the user, an attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user access.
We recommend the following actions be taken:
Install the updates provided by Adobe immediately after appropriate testing.
Remind users not to visit untrusted websites or follow links provided by unknown or untrusted sources.
Do not open email attachments from unknown or untrusted sources.
Run all software as a non-privileged user (one without administrative privileges) to diminish the effects of a successful attack
