An Adobe Security Bulletin has been posted to address critical security issues in Adobe Flash Player, referenced in Security Advisory APSA10-01. This Security Bulletin affects Flash Player versions 10.0.45.2 and earlier, as well as AIR versions 188.8.131.5230 and earlier.
Although Adobe suggests downloading the upate from the Adobe Flash Player Download Center or by using the auto-update mechanism within the product when prompted, the fastest method is the direct download:
- IE: http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/current/install_flash_player_ax.exe
- Non-IE (Opera, Firefox etc) http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/current/install_flash_player.exe
If you use the Adobe Flash Player Download Center, be careful to UNCHECK the box shown below. It is not needed for the Flash Player update!
Free Google Toolbar (optional)
Search Google from any web page, block pop-ups
Free McAfee® Security Scan Plus (optional)
To verify the Adobe Flash Player version number installed on your computer, go to the About Flash Player page, or right-click on content running in Flash Player and select "About Adobe Flash Player" from the menu. Do this for each browser installed on your computer.
