    After suspecting a zero day exploit was being used to attack the latest version of Flash Player (9.0.124.0), Symantec says the call was a mistake — it was an exploit for versions 9.0.115.0 and prior.


    Yesterday it was feared that hackers were using a malicious ShockWave Flash file which Symantec researchers thought was a zero day exploit for the latest version of Flash Player.

    Symantec, however, shied away from confirming that it was a zero day exploit, as it appears to be designed for a flaw which Adobe patched in April, prior to it being publicly disclosed by an IBM security researcher.
