    Adobe has issued a security update for its widely-used Flash software, protecting against a number of critical security vulnerabilities that could be exploited by malicious hackers.

    In a security bulletin published on its website, Adobe recommends that users of Adobe Flash Player 10.1.85.3 and earlier versions for Windows, Macintosh, Linux, and Solaris update to Adobe Flash Player 10.1.102.64.

    In addition, the firm says that they expect to make available an update for Flash Player 10.x for the Android mobile operating system by November 9, 2010.

    One of the vulnerabilities fixed by the updated version of Flash is CVE-2010-3654. Last week the firm warned that that exploit was being used by malicious hackers to target users of Flash, Acrobat and Adobe Reader. A fix for Reader and Acrobat is scheduled for the week of November 15.

    If you're not sure which version of the Adobe Flash Player you have installed, visit the About Flash Player page. But remember that if you use more than one browser on your computer you should check the version number on each.

    By the way, take a little care when installing a new version of Flash. You may want to think carefully about whether you also want to install McAfee Security Scan Plus.

    Adobe rather cheekily (in my humble opinion) defaults to having that box selected by default even though it's not necessary if all you want to do is update Flash.

    It would obviously be a good idea for everyone to update vulnerable computers as soon as possible.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
