Adobe Flash Player Update

Adobe Flashplayer

Adobe has released Version of Adobe Flash Player and AIR for Windows, macOS, Linux and Chrome OS. These updates address feature and performance bugs, and do not include security fixes.   

Release date:  March 12, 2019
Vulnerability identifier: APSB19-12
Platform:  Windows, Macintosh, Linux and Chrome OS


*Important Note:  Downloading the update from the Adobe Flash Player Download Center link includes a pre-checked option to install unnecessary extras, such as McAfee Scan Plus or Google Drive.  If you use the download center, uncheck any unnecessary extras that you do not want.  They are not needed for the Flash Player update.

    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.

    To verify the version of Adobe Flash Player for Android, go to Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > Adobe Flash Player x.x.

    May the wind sing to you and the sun rise in your heart...

    Four days ago my Windows 10 computer had severe problems: some web pages tabs crashed. When I tried to scan system for viruses using Windows Defender, the antivirus service stops after few minutes. An attempt to install other antivirus failed. Blue screen crash became frequent, total 10 in day, although I had not them in previous 6 months. Offline scan did not reveal any malicious code.

    I blame Adobe flash player vulnerability, because after the patch was published the system again worked correctly.

    If the problems had started after the last Flash Player update rather than days before the recent update, then I might have attributed it to Flash Player. If the BSOD's continue/return, I suggest you consider registering at Sysnative and following the instructions in Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.
