On 2012Jul12, I became aware of a new version of the Flash player: 11.3.300.265. According to the Flash site (https://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/), both the Plug-in and ActiveX versions are now at 11.3.300.265. Checking the Flash Windows control panel showed I was running older versions of both the Plug-in and ActiveX players.

However, according to the Secunia OSI, I had the current ActiveX Flash version, which it showed as 11.3.300.257. I updated both the Plug-in and ActiveX versions by downloading the latest versions from Adobe. The Adobe control panel now shows both versions as 11.3.300.265.

So there seems to be a problem with the ActiveX Flash player version information in the Secunia OSI.

Flash Player 11.3.300.265 is a stability fix. The version you have does not have any security vulnerabilities. OSI would, therefore, not flag it up, in line with the usual Secunia policy.

If you have automatic updates switched on in the Flash Player Control Panel, you should receive the update from Adobe.

Understood. OSI is about running secure software, not necessarily the most recent versions of software. Thanks.
