Security Alert - Adobe Flash Player
« on: May 29, 2008, 10:09:08 »
Quote from: Drysc
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 at the link below.

where did you get that info?

I am a Warlock - Your solo nature means that you're very capable of fending for yourself. It also means, however, that you have trouble finding your place in groups.

That version of Flash Player has been out since the middle of April. So that's well over a month.

With Secunia's Personal Software Inspector (PSI) you can always see what software on your computer needs updating because of vulnerabilities.

You can get it here: https://psi.secunia.com/

In addition to this, it is VERY advisable to block all to be mentioned hosts here-under in your firewall/router:

play0nlnie.com [125.46.104.172]
tongji123.org [60.190.118.43]
dota11.cn [221.206.20.145]
woai117.cn [221.206.20.145]
12-27.net [121.10.108.28]
513389.cn [121.10.108.28]
wudiliuliang.com [59.34.197.14]
iphone001.com [74.222.134.204]
qisihuisheng.net [66.186.58.234]
ageofconans.net [59.34.197.14]
guccime.net [121.10.105.109]
isee080.net [121.10.105.109]
12-26.net [121.10.105.109]
zuoyouweinan.com [66.186.58.234]
wudiliuliang.com [59.34.197.14]
psp1111.cn [60.190.118.66]
lkjrc.cn [121.10.107.64]
nokia8.com.cn [121.10.107.64]
0novel.com [58.215.87.11]

These hosts are responsible for not patched machines in getting those ppl infected without knowing by redirecting them to malware flash content.
In which case there is a very high possibility your WoW account might get compromised.
Also it would be very very wise to use Mozilla Firefox in addition with it's NoScript addon, which blocks flash content automatically.

NoScript is paranoid.

better paranoid and safe than sorry... besides that, you can tell NoScript what to do, so you arent that restricted.
