Blizzard has announced that they have had to temporarily disable hyperlinks on the World of Warcraft official forums as a result of a recently identified security vulnerability in Adobe Flash.
A recent vulnerability has been discovered in popular web-content delivery program Adobe Flash, and it could potentially be used to target World of Warcraft players and accounts. The newest available version of Adobe Flash, version 126.96.36.199, does not contain this vulnerability, and we recommend that everyone upgrade their Flash player as soon as possible by visiting the Adobe.com download page at the link below.

We’ll continue to evaluate any potential security threats and take any steps necessary to ensure a safe and fun environment.
