Trailrunner7 writes "Adobe has moved up the release date for the patch for the critical bug in Adobe Flash Player revealed last week, and now plans to have an emergency fix ready on Thursday. The company still plans to patch Reader two weeks from now. The vulnerability in Flash also exists in Reader and researchers said last week that attackers had already begun exploiting the bug in Reader by the time that Adobe acknowledged the problem and published an advisory. At the time of the initial advisory, Adobe officials said they planned to release a patch for Flash on Nov. 9 and for Reader on Nov. 15."
