Update: Last Adobe 0-day Patched for the Year

Update: Qualys QID is 124421: Adobe Flash Player and AIR Security Update (APSB16-01).

Original: Adobe issued today their last update for 2015 for its Flash player. It addresses nineteen vulnerabilities and was released out of band because one of them (CVE-2015-8651) is under attack in the wild. At this point attacks are limited to special targets. The update is numbered APSB16-01, not APSB15-33 as expected, most likely because it is basically the planned January 2016 update, anticipated due to the circumstances.

As with all 0-days fixes this one deserves special attention and a quick turnaround.
