Doesn't shit like this happen every couple of months?
Yes, but this time ... it got worse.
I dunno if you heard about "Hacking Team", which was a so-called security company that sold spyware tools to governments and private companies, but they were compromised and a lot of their info was leaked, including the tools used by these exploits. So naturally assholes are using it to try to screw people over.
Just saying, it got real bad this time, and Adobe will release a patch tomorrow. I'm just warning people and making sure they don't end up getting hit by this.
