Two vulnerabilities have been discovered, affecting Adobe’s Flash software and Microsoft’s Windows operating system. Hacking Team describes the Flash flaw as "the most beautiful Flash bug for the last four years," suggesting that the company may have been using this to access people’s machines for quite some time. The vulnerability itself allows malicious attackers to execute code on a victim’s machine through a website. It affects Windows, OS X, and Linux, and can be used against browsers like IE, Firefox, Chrome, and Safari.
