In an advisory June 4, Adobe warned users that a vulnerability affecting Adobe Reader, Flash Player and Acrobat was actively being exploited by attackers.

Adobe is readying a fix for a security bug being targeted by attackers. A patch addressing the issue on Windows, Mac, Linux and Solaris machines is expected to come within the next few days.

With attackers circling, Adobe Systems plans to patch a zero-day security vulnerability bug later this week.

The bug exists in Flash Player and earlier versions for Windows, Macintosh, Linux and Solaris as well as the authplay.dll component that ships with Adobe Reader and Acrobat 9.x for Windows, Mac and Unix operating systems.
