Google fixes Flash Player security hole in Chrome

To provide their users with better security, Google has fixed this exploit in Google Chrome, making it safe once again.

Flaw in Adobe Flash Player has affected many users, but it appears that Chrome users are safe unlike users of other browsers that will have to wait for Adobe’s official solution – that should be released soon.
If you’re wondering how has Google managed to fix this problem for its users, the answer is quite simple. As you know, Google Chrome comes with Adobe Flash Player preinstalled, and therefore, Google has access to new builds of Flash Player. So if you’re using the newest Chrome with preinstalled Flash Player, you’re safe from this exploit, but if you’re using any browser with stand-alone Flash Player, you’re still vulnerable to this attack.
It’s great to see that Google has fixed this problem in its browser, and we’re hoping Adobe will release an official fix soon.
