Again - Adobe patches zero-day Flash flaw

Adobe has released critical updates for Flash Player on Windows, Mac and Linux. Versions 12.0.0.44 and earlier for Windows and Macintosh and versions 11.2.202.336 and earlier versions for Linux are vulnerable to up to three vulnerabilities.

One of these, CVE-2014-0502, is being exploited in the wild. Click here for more detail on how the attack was found by security firm Fireeye and how it behaves.

The new version of Adobe Flash Player on Windows and Mac is 12.0.0.70. The new version for Linux is 11.2.202.341. A Google Chrome update to version 33.0.1750.117 today includes the fixed Flash plugin bundled with that product. Microsoft has released an update for Windows 8.0 and 8.1 for the bundled Flash Player plugin in Internet Explorer 10 and 11.

Typical Adobe.

I've only just finished installing the previous version on all of my operating systems (physical and virtual).

I would suggest checking for cookies after updating Adobe.
This what I found.
Even I unchecked the McAfee thing I still found 2 entries in the registry.

I have Pale Moon set to delete "Cookies" (and other items) when it closes.
Once Pale Moon has closed, my browser script also automatically summons CCleaner for me.

Thanks for the "heads up" though.

When will they ever learn? Got the update automagically.

Given Adobe's track record with Flash exploits, I don't use their auto-update feature.

Flash is supposed to notify me when there is an update, but that feature stopped working on my PC (a few updates ago).

I normally find about the updates here, or at Filepuma (whilst checking out their software updates lists).

Same here, I don't allow auto updates, & I never get any notification from Adobe anymore.

When I do need to update, I just go to the Installation Problems page & d/l the updates directly without going through the regular page. Less chance of forgetting to uncheck something.

They're under "Progress bar hangs during download / Unable to connect to server / Unable to download metafile"
