SAT News: Flash Zero Day, McAfee AV Vulnerability, MiKey Linux Keylogger

Nuspire Security Analytics Team news to cover multiple different vulnerabilities.

First things first, Adobe patches another slew of vulnerabilities (17) including one Zero-day bug that is being actively exploited in the wild. Adobe is aware of CVE-2016-7892 and that it is targeting users running Internet Explorer 32-bit on Windows machines. If Flash Player is not needed for business operation we recommend removing this program from machines or restricting use to only be allowed from trusted hosts.
