Adobe Flash Player Critical Security Update

Although the Adobe Security Bulletin ha not been updated to indicate that the Flash Player update was released today, the update is available at the Download Center as well as the direct download links.
Although Adobe suggests downloading the update from the Adobe Flash Player Download Center or by using the auto-update mechanism within the product when prompted, if you prefer, the direct download links are as follows:
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.

McAfee Security Scan Plus
In addition, any toolbar offered with Adobe products can be unchecked if not wanted.

Verify Installation:
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.

You may also want to verify the version of Adobe AIR installed on your system in the Adobe AIR TechNote.

Thanks for being first with this info, supplying the direct links to the downloads (without the crap) and reminding people to uncheck the toolbars and additional software.

You rock, Corrine.

how do I determine what the most current Air version is?

You're welcome, Brian. Thank you for the kind words.

@cel -- I hope you're doing well in this wet November.

The current version of Adobe Air is Adobe AIR 2.5. If you go to add/remove programs, you will see the version there. Most logs I see still have some iteration of version 1.
