Adobe has added a new feature to the latest Flash Player update that will be sweet music to the ears of system admins the world over.

Flash Player version 11.2 for Windows, OS X and Linux, introduces an automatic, silent update mechanism to help users stay up-to-date with the latest releases. Given the number and severity of vulnerabilities affecting Flash Player, this is a very good thing indeed and will make PCs a lot harder to the bad guys to get into.

The latest Flash Player can be downloaded from Adobe’s website. During installation Windows users will see a new dialog box prompting them to enable automatic updating.

If you are a Google Chrome user then the browser has been automatically updating the Flash Player plugin for you.

Same here, I prefer to have some control over what/when something gets installed.

Hence the reason I didn't update Secunia. From what I've read, it just automatically updates things without giving you the option to choose when.

I have it set to disabled, yet Adobe doesn't seem to care what you select. Start here,

and then when you check Task Scheduler you find this,

Funny, I could have sworn I opted for it to NOT check for updates ever. The sooner Flash/Adobe dies, the better. Then again it is an easy fix just by deleting the task, but it shouldn't have been there in the first place.

When you downloaded the latest flash player the option box if checked said that Adobe will notify you first before it downloads the new player. It didn't give the option to never update.

I'm fine with the notify first and let my manually update.

The new version gives the option to "Never check for updates" upon installation:
