Re: New Adobe Flash and PDF exploit, How does it effect me?
They mention MAC OS/X, Linux, Solaris, UNIX but their target does indeed stipulate .exe .dll .com .bat which in the *nix world the .bat holds the only danger unless the *nix is running Windows in a virtualbox as Root! and with virtualbox given system wide access. When I was playing a flashplayer file about a month back, I did see adobe trying to load and run .dll's under Linux but all that happened was an entry in /var/log about failed attempt to access the Cwindows\system32\xxx.dll and a warning in adobe about pluggin could not be loaded some features may not be available.
