The Register: Adobe usually releases security updates on the second Tuesday of the month, but this month it is pushing out a Flash patch a week early. The upgrade fixes two vulnerabilities discovered by Google; both involve a memory corruption vulnerability in Matrix3D. No known exploits for the vulnerabilities exist, but Adobe has released the patch early because of the serious nature of the security bugs.

Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Solaris and Android users should update their Flash players with the new patch.
