    Thought I'd pass this along.

    eEye reports [1] that Macromedia Flash contains a buffer overflow,
    allowing execution of arbitary code and thus to take over the machine
    (gain the same rights as the user).

    Macromedia confirmed [2] the bug and released a new version of Flash [3].

    eEye also claims that it found 17 (!) other overflows, which it is
    resolving with Macromedia now.
