    This has been all over the last week on various sites and on the main site, but just in case you missed any of it, make sure you update your Adobe Flash player to the latest and greatest. There is a security vulneribility out there that could compromise your WoW account:
    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 9.0.124.0, 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.
    For more information on
    this issue, you can read the announcements from the Adobe security team
    concerning the threat at the links below.
