Currently targeted attacks are focusing on Interent Explorer for Windows 7 and earlier, and Firefox on Windows XP. Mac and Windows Flash users running versions lower than 18.0.0.161 should update to version 18.0.0.194 immediately.

You can get the latest version of the Flash player at the Adobe website.
