Thanks for the warning, Pete.  I block Flash served from anywhere but trusted sites.  I'll continue to be careful, even after Adobe releases its fix at the end of this month.  Thank goodness Flash blocking protects me from some zero-day exploits.

This has convinced me to add the Adobe Product Security Incident Response Team blog to my feeds.  It warned about this a couple of days ago.

I'm guessing this is the same Donna Buenaventura  who frequently posts to Cnet?
Thank goodness for Noscript.

Her rinkedin profile here.  Although I first spotted her at Calendar of Updates but she seems to be very active on the net in general.
