A new Adobe Flash Zero-Day exploit, known as CVE-2015-0313, has been discovered by Trend Micro. This exploit is used in a malvertisement attack.
Trend Micro researchers have identified active attacks using malicious advertisements, or “malvertisements”, against Microsoft Windows systems.
Malvertising does not impact a single website, but rather an entire advertising network.
It allows for malware to be easily spread across a large number of legitimate websites without directly compromising the sites.
“This vulnerability has been confirmed by Adobe and the two companies are collaborating on this discovery to have a patch in place within the week,” said Trend Micro.
Trend Micro is advising that users consider disabling Flash Player until this patch is released.
