An exploit code for the Adobe Flash Player plug-in has been used to infect millions of Android devices, according to security researchers.
In a blog post on Tuesday, the researchers say they uncovered a malicious code that is part of Adobe Flash Plug-in for Android, which was installed on millions of devices from a number of manufacturers.
The researchers said they had previously identified an exploit code in Flash that was used to inject code into infected devices, but the researchers had not seen this particular code before.
The Adobe Flash plug-ins have been widely used by advertisers to display advertisements on websites and apps, but have also been used by criminals to infect devices with malware.
Adobe released a fix in October to address the issue.
The authors of the report said they found evidence that this particular exploit code was being used to execute code in the wild on Android devices.
They said the vulnerability could allow attackers to install malicious code on devices that are not running the Adobe software, or even run it in the background.
“Adobe has implemented a new update for Flash Player that fixes this vulnerability, but is still vulnerable to this exploit,” the researchers wrote.
The authors suggest that all users update their apps immediately. “
The fix for this vulnerability is now available in the Google Store, and users are encouraged to update their Flash Player apps as soon as possible to take advantage of this new vulnerability.”
“The authors suggest that all users update their apps immediately.
It is important to note that this update only affects Flash Player 9.0.x, not newer versions, as it is still in beta testing and we expect to see more bugs in the future.”
The researchers have said that the vulnerability is not yet fixed in the latest version of Flash Player.
