A few days ago we were notified of two vulnerabilities within the Flash Player that could potentially allow an attacker to take control of an affected system. Upon investigation, we confirmed and fixed the issues, and took steps to ensure that this class of attack cannot be used as a future attack vector.
We released an update to Flash Player this morning, and are proactively pushing the update out to users. We are also working with browser vendors to distribute the updated player.
We would like to thank Dhanesh Kizhakkinan of FireEye and Peter Pi of TrendMicro and slipstream/RoL for reporting the issues and working with us to help us quickly address them.
Flash Player is one of the most ubiquitous and widely distributed pieces of software in the world, and as such, is a target of malicious hackers. We are actively working to improve Flash Player security, and as we did in this case, will work to quickly address issues when they are discovered.
Negatives provides a new look for Instagram! Instead of the regular feed Negatives shows you all of your Instagram friends along with each friend’s photos so you can easily follow them and see the new photos they upload. Negatives’ new interface streamlines your Instagram experience by allowing you to easily track your friends photos, explore photos from other users to find new friends, see photos of tags and much more! Your friends’ are ordered chronologically so that the top most friend is the one with the newest photo. The order in which your friends appear will change based on the photos they upload. The photos for each friend are also ordered chronologically so that the left most photo is the newest. Negatives will automatically highlight new photos that you haven’t seen yet with a white frame.
