With all the Flash Player and Java zero-day vulnerabilities lately getting exploited in attacks, browser vendors are trying to come up with solutions to protect their users without antagonizing them with lengthy hoop-jumping.
As you may already heard, Adobe has pushed out an update for Flash Player that fixes vulnerabilities discovered to be currently exploited in the wild in targeted attacks.
Adobe is urging users to update their Flash Player for the third time this month, as once again the company is aware of vulnerabilities being exploited in the wild in targeted attacks.
Adobe has pushed out an emergency Flash update that solves two critical vulnerabilities (CVE-2013-0633 and CVE-2013-0634) that are being actively exploited to target Windows and OS X users, and is urging users to implement it as soon as possible.
Following the recent debacle of the critical Java 0-day that was being actively exploited in the wild, in an attempt to minimize its users' attack surface Mozilla has enabled "Click To Play" for recent versions of Java on all platforms, ensuring that the Java plugin will not load unless a user specifically clicks to enable the plugin.
