Macromedia has issued an updated version of the Flash Player to fix an issue, which has been exploited in combination with known browser vulnerabilities to access users' systems.
The problem is that the Flash Player creates certain data files (".sol" files) in predictable locations in which the content of Flash cookies are placed.
This can be used to place malicious content in a predictable file on a users system. Combined with a browser vulnerability, which allows arbitrary files on a user's system to be read, this may allow execution of script code in context of the local system.
Solution: Update to version 7,0,19,0 via the Macromedia Player Download Center.
