Hello all,

After 1 week Adobe has released a new version of the Adobe Flash Player.
Adobe Flash Player 11.3.300.270 for Windows was released to address a crash that was occurring in the Adobe Flash Player Update Service.

This new release will be available for Windows user by use of the automatic update.
The Adobe Flash download page still provide 11.3.300.268.
Link: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer

Please read more (or download the latest Adobe Flash Player) from:
link: http://forums.adobe.com/message/4594596#4594596

@ Support Team: It must be hard to keep up with these frequent Adobe Flash Player updates. May I ask you to add Adobe Flash Player 11.3.300.270 to PSI's database?

Websafe.

Which version of PSI are U using - it shows in version 2.0.0.3003 including the Secure Browsing Page.

EDIT:

Also tested using version 1.5.0.2 & 3.0.0.3003 - both shown automatically without a rescan.

Hello Maurice Joyce,

Thanks for your reply,

I'm also using Secunia's PSI 2.0.0.3003.
Only the Plug-in version of Adobe Flash Player 11.3.300.270 is installed, no ActiveX.
Path: C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash\NPSWF32_11_3_30 0_270.dll
Just done a full PSI scan, however Adobe Flash Player 11.3.300.270 is not listed under “Scan results” or “Secure browsing”.

Windows XP home SP3,
Windows Vista home Premium 32-bit SP2,

I only use IE with Active X.

Have U checked the list of files U have installed for Flash in Windows Explorer?

EDIT:

Copy of my files are here which I installed on 3rd August.

Hello Maurice Joyce,

Under: C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash\
I find:

FlashInstall.log - 3 th August
flashplayer.xpt – 3 th August
FlashPlayerUpdateService.exe – 3 th August
FlashUtil32_11_3_300_270_Plugin.exe – 3 th August
mms.cfg – 26 July
NPSWF32_11_3_300_270.dll – 3 th August

Windows Vista only also has under C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash\:
FlashPlayerPlugin_11_3_300_270.exe

Since mms.cfg has an older date, I decided to install Adobe Flash Player 11.3.300.270 again.
All files now show 5 th August, PSI did not recognize the Adobe Flash plug-in at first scan, but it did recognize the Adobe Flash plug-in while typing this text (?!?).
Did a new complete scan, and the Adobe Flash plug-in was gone from PSI again.

Also downloaded and installed the ActiveX version of Adobe Flash Player 11.3.300.270.
Rebooted and scanned again.

PSI now detects the ActiveX version of Adobe Flash Player 11.3.300.270, but not the plug-in version.

Thank you for the update - Cannot help with the plug in as I only use Active X.

I think this has happened before. For a better response I would email Secunia at support@secunia.com & highlight the issue with the plug in or use the PSI Suggest a Program option for the plug in file.

Hello Maurice Joyce,

Thanks for your reactions.

Have used the PSI to Suggest a Program option.
Will wait for a response from the Support Team next Monday.

Have a nice day,

why does it take secunia so long to update flash player? i only use the active x with IE. a week ago, the flash player update service told me there was an update available. this evening my psi 3.00.2003 is still showing flash player version 11.3.300.257. i downloaded the newest version myself after deleting the old version.(11.3.300.270).

Hello Muffin,

Secunia's PSI is a vulnerability checker. It seems to me the updates from Adobe Flash Player version 11.3.300.257 till 11.3.300.270 don't contain any security updates.
Link: http://secunia.com/advisories/product/38260/?task=...
Therefore PSI will not alert you for the last updates.

Websafe.

Hello Muffin,

Did a forum search and found this thread:
http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/416...

Don't know why and how often this difference in System Score and Forum System Score happens.
You might consider to start a new thread if you want to find out more about the System Score difference.

When I installed the new Flash Player ActiveX and Plug-in (11.3.300.270) on the 3rd of August, PSI 2.0.0.4003 showed a pop-up that they were installed. I just ran a full scan and neither were detected. I uninstalled them and reinstalled both and again PSI reported them as installed.

Can anyone tell why when I scan they are not detected. I am not that tech savvy, but I have not noticed this before.

Thanks,
ManFromOz

Just done a rescan - nothing now showing on my PC either.

It looks like Secunia are adjusting their database & all will be revealed shortly.

Thanks for confirming it isn't just at my end. I will wait patiently. ;-)

Your wait should be over. ActiveX is now showing in PSI version 1.0.50.2,2.0.0.3003 & 3.0.0.3003 on my tests after a rescan.

I cannot verify the plug in because I do not use any browser other than IE.

Pleased to see it looks like it is fixed for everyone.

To save YOUR time in the future my advice would be to NEVER assume it is U or your PC in error when PSI fails to register a programme update.

Just use the PSI "Suggest A Program" feature & sit back & wait for a Secunia email response and/or post to the Forum for a second opinion.

Secunia will not respond over the weekend but are extremely good at putting "things right" when they are made aware of a database issue during working hours.

Hope this helps.
