    In Chrome, it is a must to enable "click to play". That way, unless deliberately run, Flash stuff (mainly ads) can't do damage.

    I've been calling for the end of Flash for years. It is a thoroughly broken and insecure piece of software. Just put it out of its misery.

    What makes this news worthy is the source of it, a self professed "security" company that used it to sell surveilance tools. Moral of the story, zero-days should be reported and fixed, not traded and exploited for what ever reason.. Edit: Oh, and it's been three Flash zero-days from the same guys in the last week.. so far.
