If you feel like you just updated Adobe Flash Player a few days ago, you are right. Although a critical security update was released last Thursday, yet another update was released today. The updates released are not only for Adobe Flash Player but also Adobe AIR and Adobe Shockwave Player.

 

Direct download links for Adobe Flash Player are below. Information for Adobe AIR and Adobe Shockwave Player can be found in my blog post at Another Critical Adobe Update, Includes Flash Player, AIR and Shockwave.

Thanks Corrine. I'm off to update the XP and 7 computers.

 

I think this rash of flash updates might force my hubby to use the XP computer and I can finally pry the 2K one away from him. :teehee:

 

He gets popups when he tries to view something (like a Jacquie Lawson card from me). He knows that he is stuck at FF v12 and also can't update flash because if he tries it will fail so he turns on the updated XP computer and has no problem. YES!

Thing is, users think it is a bug in the update program and ignore it.

Well, if they don't keep up with them, they will get the same debacle that Oracle is going through right now.

 

They know how that feels. They have been there before a few years back, and I really don't think they want to go there again...

I update flash on XP and 7 within a few hours of Corrine's posts.

 

My hubby is now using the XP computer a lot more since I explained to him the popups on his 2K about flash needing to be updated can not be fixed. (He doesn't wander too far that's why I was not too worried about him getting malware). The 2K computer is stuck at 11.1. something. My 2K computer does not go out into the world. :teehee:

I think I can finally move his 2K computer to the other end of the basement. He can still do work on it, he just won't be connected.

Flash then Java. Java then Flash. And again next week. Are Adobe and Oracle using the same security strategy manual to maintain these apps?
