    Critical Update: Adobe Flash Player


    Posted: 10 Jun 2010
    An Adobe Security Bulletin has been posted to address critical security issues in Adobe Flash Player, referenced in Security Advisory APSA10-01. This Security Bulletin affects Flash Player versions 10.0.45.2 and earlier, as well as AIR versions 1.5.3.9130 and earlier.Although Adobe suggests downloading the upate from the Adobe Flash Player Download Center or by using the auto-update mechanism within the product when prompted, the fastest method is the direct download from http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flas..._player_ax.exe

    If you use the Adobe Flash Player Download Center, be careful to UNCHECK the box for the Mcfee scan. It is not needed for the 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.

    I was also -- and beginning to think it wasn't going to happen today.

    Adobe Reader and Acrobat 9.3.2 for Windows, Macintosh and UNIX is expected by June 29, 2010.

    Hi, EchoX860.

    Make sure that Firefox has the current version of Flash at About Flash Player page

    I should have included the direct d/l link for FF as well: http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get...ash_player.exe

    Still looks like the 64 bit flash player is an unsolvable problem of mythical porportions. I would happlily abandon my 32 bit browser if they could only get this solved.

    Adobe Squashes Actively Exploited Flash Bug.


    New Flash Player version plugs over thirty security holes.

    Adobe has released a Flash Player update that fixes a flurry of vulnerabilities including a critical zero-day flaw (CVE-2010-1297) that has been actively exploited in attacks since last week. In addition to the numerous security patches, the new Flash player 10.1.53.64 version brings major functionality and performance improvements.

    A lot of eyes have been on Adobe since last week, when yet another remote code execution vulnerability affecting Flash Player, as well as Adobe Reader and Acrobat, was announced. Worse yet, the bug was discovered in the wild, meaning it posed an immediate threat to users.

    Flash Problems


    Does anyone know why my flash player is being cut off on the right side? It is as if the flash screen is being overlapped the right side of the screen.
    Thanks for any help.
