New malware exploits fully patched Adobe Flash....Again.

A new malware targeting fully patched versions of Adobe's Flash Player has been found being exploited in the wild. The malware, being called part of the Pawn Storm campaign, was first discovered by security firm Trend Micro and has since been confirmed by Adobe. Users only need to visit a site hosting malicious flash content to be infected. Once infected the attackers can gain root access to the infected computer, which allows them unfettered access to the computer system. Adobe said that they are working on a patch, but that it wouldn't available until next week sometime. In the meantime, to protect yourself, you should either disable flash in the browser or use a flash blocking plugin in your browser. You can read more about this here, here and here.
