Security Updates for Flash, Opera
Adobe is urging people who use its Flash Player (this includes pretty much all Windows users) to upgrade to a new version that fixes at least nine separate security vulnerabilities that could be exploited to install unwanted software on vulnerable computers.
The latest, patched version of the Adobe Flash Player is 22.214.171.124, but regular readers of this blog most likely have version 126.96.36.199 on their systems. Adobe says the flaws are present in pretty much all versions prior to 188.8.131.52.
To see what version of Flash you have, visit this link and check the number displayed in the "version information" box. Updates are available for pretty much all browsers on just about any operating system, including Linux and Mac OS X (a Solaris update will be released later on). The latest Windows version is available for download at this page. Updates for other operating systems can be found here (note the link to the Flash uninstall tool should you have trouble updating).
