Adobe says it will issue an update patching the zero-day exploit on Flash.

Adobe has announced that it will fix the dangerous zero-day exploit on Flash via an update today. The exploit used the built-in JavaScript to attack with a trojan horse that could potentially “cause a crash and potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system.” Currently, other than Flash, Acrobat and Adobe Reader are the two other Adobe products that are vulnerable to the exploit.

Adobe said that a patch for Acrobat and Reader will be issued on June 29th. “The June 29, 2010 security update for Adobe Reader and Acrobat represents an accelerated release of the next quarterly security update originally scheduled for July 13, 2010. In addition to addressing CVE-2010-1297, the accelerated next quarterly Adobe Reader and Acrobat update will also resolve a number of responsibly disclosed vulnerabilities. The full details will be in the Security Bulletin and Release Notes we will publish when the security update is posted.”
