From WoW Website:
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 188.8.131.52, 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.
In addition, to avoid exploitation of this vulnerability, we have temporarily disabled the ability to post hyperlinks in our forums. Any links will need to be copied and pasted into a browser. We’ll continue to evaluate any potential security threats and take any steps necessary to ensure a safe and fun environment.

Hot Topics from the Nether!
Lassirra from The Hunter’s Mark, a popular hunter blog, had her account hacked this Thursday. In an eloquent and very potent post, she wrote a letter to the hacker. Go read, it is definitely worth it.
Blogger Suggest Possible Solutions
One of Lassirra’s guild mates and friend, Luke/Hushai posted a article regarding possible solutions Blizzard could implement to help users further secure your account. Check it out here.
Kestrel from Kestrel’s Aerie, also suggested using Secunia.com, which scans your system for insecure programs, identifies them, and provides links to the latest known secure version.

Twisted Blog of the Week and Guest-Bellwether!
This week we are graced by the lovely Bellwether from 4haelz.blogspot.com. Bell is a high-end raider who writes about the druid class, with a main focus on the restoration tree. This girl loves her leaves!
In addition, we want to apologize for some of the sound quality in this edition. We are still geting our recording environment setup and hope that the rest will be much better.
