Steve Jobs Says I Told You: Adobe Found Critical Flaw In Flash

Adobe rise a Security Alert for Flash, Adobe Reader and Acrobat. This security issue affect all the OS (Windows, Linux, Mac, etc) running any of this 3 programas (I think almost all the personal computers on the planet are running any of this programs). I think this is the first time a security issue affect all the OS at the same time, did I'm wrong?

The affected version are Adobe Flash Player 10.0.45.2, 9.0.262 and 10.0.x and 9.0.x for Windows, Mac, Linux and Solaris; In the case of Adobe Reader and Acrobat, the versions 9.3.2 and older to 9.0.x for Windows, Mac and UNIX. The Version 10.1 RC for Flash "seems to be safe".

The affected file seems to be the authplay.dll so to avoid this security issue you can delete, rename or change privileges to this file.

I think Steve Jobs is now happy and seems Google hate Flash Player too. Is this the end for the Flash Player? it's unreliability, insecure and has low performance, words from the CEO Steve Jobs.
