Yahoo hit by Malvertising campaign, and Flash is the culprit again

Yahoo was recently a victim of malicious attacks, and they came in the form of ads.

Yes, its own ads were hacked by a Malvertising campaign, and guess who was the culprit here?

Adobe Flash, takes the infamous crown yet again, in what seems to be a barrage of attacks which happened over the past few weeks. It began with the data theft from a security firm, when hackers exploited several vulnerabilities in Flash player to breach into the system.

This led to Facebook’s Head of Security calling for the “End of Support for Flash”, and even worse, the loopholes used in the attack convinced Mozilla to block the Flash Plugin in Firefox, for a [...]
