    Today's Internet Storm Center diary contains a follow up to this story;
    Quote;
    "Update: We got an email from someone at Adobe stating this vulnerability has not yet been exploited in the wild. Our initial assessment was based on the priority rating of "1" which Adobe descripes (sic) as "This update resolves vulnerabilities being targeted, or which have a higher risk of being targeted, by exploit(s) in the wild for a given product version and platform. Adobe recommends administrators install the update as soon as possible. (for example, within 72 hours)." and the fact that Fortiguard is credited in the Advisory. Fortiguard does track exploitation attempts detected by Fortinet customers."

    The apparent lack of exploitation (so far) may be good to know but, if you have Shockwave Player installed, it's probably best to patch it now.
