Hi all

Just a FYI-did a full scan & PSI reports that
Flash Player (ActiveX) has been removed-both
in the Patched & Secure Browsing tabs. I checked in Programs & Features & both ActiveX & NPAPI
are populated there.
Time for more thumb twiddling I guess.

Regards, wr

Same thing here. No ActiveX Flash Player listed in PSI 2.0.0.4003 after a Full System Scan. The version hasn't changed and is still 11.4.402.287.

I've just scanned again and ActiveX Flash player is now shown in the list. A temporary glitch?

Hi ManfromOz
Was busy elsewhere but I see from
your post that the additional scan worked for
you also.

Sure wish all problems were so simple to solve.

Well that didn't last long!

A Full System Scan just now shows Flash Player ActiveX MIA again.

Hi, there's somthing wrong with this. I just ran a full scan (8.15hrs am Amsterdam tine) and Flash Player ActiveX is still, or again, missing from the installed software list. There were issues in the past but they were solved. Maybe support jumps in later today.

Looks perfectly normal to me. Its Adobe & comes & goes in a Flash as do the vulnerabilities it constantly creates!

Enjoy your day.

Add me to the list of users where Adobe Active X Flash Player is MIA today (19 Oct.), but was present yesterday. I emailed support just now using the Suggest a Program form.

Hi, Secunia support just confirmed bt e-mail that it's a known issue and that it's under investigation. Waiting for a solution is the best to do I think.

This is simply ridiculous!

Adobe Flash Player ActiveX version is missing AGAIN after a Full System Scan. Secunia, please get this sorted.

Thank you all for your patience. Unfortunately this detection issue with Adobe Flash Player is a special case where a simple update to our detection rules does not solve the issue on a permanent basis. We are now in the process of finding a permanent solution to the problem. We fully realize the importance of getting this fixed ASAP.
