Here's an important security heads-up to all computer users: Adobe plans to ship a critical Flash Player update next Tuesday to fix multiple serious security vulnerabilities.

The patches will be released alongside updates from Microsoft and will affect all platforms -- Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.

Adobe Flash Player is one of the most commonly exploited desktop application.  It is installed on more than 98% of all Internet-enabled computers so this should be a high-priority update for everyone.

Adobe says the update will affect Flash Player version 10.0.32.18 and earlier versions.

A security patch for Adobe Air is also expected on Patch Tuesday.
