Adobe, Microsoft, Facebook

Well this week has been all about the Adobe Reader/Acrobat 0day vulnerability, but Adobe did release updates to Flash this week. Along with the 0day that Adobe has, word comes out that Microsoft has their own 0day vulnerability that is being seen in only targeted attacks.

Really the best defense against these types of attacks is YOU. You have to decide if you are going to click on either a link that takes you to a document either through e-mail or a web site. Trust no one is my best advice.

Now turning to Facebook. This past week there have been a couple of apps that folks fall for. Both attacks are types of social engineering that try to get you to enter your login credentials. Folks, if you are already logged on to Facebook or whatever other site you are on and you click something that prompts you to login, DON'T DO IT!! Something is wrong with that scenario.

OK, hope you all are having a fabulous weekend and snow sucks. Stay safe and Rock Chalk Jayhawk!!
