All these security problems.

Makes you wonder where the Flash 64bit is.
Seems like MS should drop them an email to let them now 64bit is here. For about the past 8 years or so.

DOH!

While 64-bit has in existence for 8 years or so...for a majority of the market place, the adoption of 64-bit has just started taking off with Windows 7. It was very rare to find an XP or Vista 64-bit machine for sale in the past...but you can find Windows 7 machines running 64-bit nearly everywhere.

Instead of talking, I think they should work on correcting this flaw >_>

Flash Player Security Updates to Land on Monday

Quote:

Adobe has announced that a new batch of Flash Player security updates are expected to land on Monday, September 20, and will include a fix for an actively exploited critical vulnerability.

At the beginning of the week, the company revealed that a new arbitrary code execution has been discovered in Flash Player 10.1.82.76, currently the latest version of the application.

It also warned that the bug, identified as CVE-2010-2884, is being exploited in the wild and announced plans to deliver a patch during the week of September 27.

Yesterday, the company amended its security advisory to announce that the patch has been pushed forward and will ship on Monday.

The upcoming updates will be available for all supported operating systems Windows, Macintosh, Linux, Solaris, and Android.

Nice to see that Google Chrome users got this Flash update early in version 6.0.472.62 which was released yesterday.

IMHO I'd be glad to see Flash completely replaced by Silverlight sometime in the future X)

Yeah, I switched over to FoxIt about 3 years ago and have never looked back. Reader is just too big, too much to install, too long to start up, etc.
I did too, at the suggestion of someone on this site.

In case anyone is interested, there's another free PDF reader called Nitro. It says it's in Beta but so far I haven't seen any problems (using it for a few months now.)
