Flash Vulnerability A Potential Danger For WoW Players
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

On its website Blizzard Entertainment has warned World of Warcraft users of an Adobe Flash vulnerability which could potentially be used to target player accounts. Although the latest version of Flash (9.0.124.0) corrects the problem, Blizzard has decided to temporarily disable the use of hyperlinks on its forums.

A recent vulnerability has been discovered in popular web-content delivery program Adobe Flash, and it could potentially be used to target World of Warcraft players and accounts. The newest available version of Adobe Flash, version 9.0.124.0, does not contain this vulnerability, and we recommend that everyone upgrade their Flash player as soon as possible by visiting the Adobe.com download page.

In addition, to avoid exploitation of this vulnerability, we have temporarily disabled the ability to post hyperlinks in our forums. Any links will need to be copied and pasted into a browser. We’ll continue to evaluate any potential security threats and take any steps necessary to ensure a safe and fun environment.
