(Reuters) – Cyber security firm Kaspersky Lab Inc said on Monday it identified a vulnerability in Adobe Flash that could be used to deploy a surveillance malware through a Microsoft Word document.

The bug was used in an attack on Oct. 10 by a group called the BlackOasis, Kaspersky said.

Adobe said it released an update earlier on Monday to address the bug. (adobe.ly/2xJNfmR)
