Google fixes Flash exploit in ChromeGoogle knows that there is a critical Adobe Flash Player bug in their Chrome browser that is no doubt being taken advantage of, but has already released a fix for it. As for users of Flash Player in other browsers, they will just have to sit tight and wait for Adobe’s official patch since that will take some time for testing against around 60 platforms and configurations. That might just lead many to ask the question as to why Google has more clout with Adobe? Well, the answer lies in an ongoing collaboration with Adobe that definitely offers Google early access to new builds of Flash. Just to know whether you’re safe from being exploited or not, those who are using Chrome on older versions of Windows will be safe if they do not have Flash Player for Internet Explorer installed, using Flash only via Chrome. Adobe hopes that this critical bug will be squashed sometime later this week.
