Flash Exploits Leading to CryptoWall Infections (Expires 7/9/2015 6:22pm)

7/2/2015 6:33pm Problem

Information Security has detected several CryptoWall infections this week. CryptoWall is ransomware that encrypts files on the infected computer (including shares if accessible) and demands the user pay the ransom to get the files restored

Upon further investigation, several of these infections were subject to exploits against Adobe Flash. ISO recommends all admins update installations of Flash to the latest version which can be found at http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/
