A zero-day vulnerability affecting Adobe Flash, labeled as CVE-2018-4878, was publicly disclosed on January 31st. If successfully exploited, the vulnerability allows for remote code execution. Adobe stated that a security patch will be made available on February 5, 2018. Attacks exploiting this vulnerability have been seen in the wild, targeting specific individuals in South Korea with specially crafted phishing emails. It is probable that other threat actors will attempt to incorporate this vulnerability into their attacks.
