Adobe has introduced "Extended Support Release" (ESR) similar Firefox ESR:

http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/distribu...

Adobe Flash Player 13.0.0.223 is installed, and PSI tells me, latest safe Version is 14.x, which is not true for ESR, because 13.0.0.223 is the latest safe version for Adobe Flash Player ESR. So, PSI should detect if Adobe Flash Player is ESR or not.

It looks to me like it is irrelevant to PSI users which is for single home use only. ESR is for Corporate/Enterprise use.

Have you found a download link that is available to home users to install ESR?

I will move this thread to xSi (SMB)

I am testing SMB which is in BETA - Have I missed a trick - how do you intend deploying it?

Hi both ,

For information , some home users of the PSI use Firefox ESR - @wr to name one - which has been subject to detection problems in the past ; hopefully now covered by the latest version numbering of Ff ESR .

Such users may also wish to benefit from the Flash ESR plug-in : as it has it's own number , it would/should be easy enough for Secunia to put it into their detection rules a la Ff .

Take care

Anthony

Anthony - agreed. It could be handy but having toyed with it there are issues not least Secunia refuse to recognise ESR claiming it is EOL.

The Adobe site on how it is updated is equally vague.

I have written to Secunia Support asking for clarification.

Is Flash showing on your Windows 8.1.1 PC?

Hi Maurice ,

I have Flash 14.0.0.125 automatically updated and installed in IE 11 and Chrome Stable 35.xx and have manually updated the Gecko based plug-in my Firefox 30.0. I do not trust the PSI installers for my "critical" software facing the internet ; too much time wasted .

if it would help , I can always try installing the 13.0.0.223 ESR from the Adobe site , but it would seem that the OP already has and PSI has reacted .

Mozilla experience shows that Secunia/PSI are reacting the same way as when they failed to take note of the ESR numbering system . It took a very long time and a more specific (easily read) numbering of the Stable and ESR versions for the PSI supposedly getting the detection rules to work correctly .
Time will tell when there is next ESR jump to a determined Stable version . I don't know how Adobe propose planning things but it will likely follow the Mozilla model . Seen here (scroll down) :-

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/organization...

that is due soonish around/at the next Stable update .

Anthony

I would not bother with ESR.

One link from Adobe is dodgy & the other results in Secunia telling you it is EOL.

It is of course no value to Windows 8 users.

Is Flash showing in PSI with your Windows 8?

My PSI 2.0.0.3003 "Scan Results" module only displays the manually installed NPAPI plug-in (in the SysWOW64 folder) ; looking inside the folder the ActiveX files for IE11are also installed . The Google Chrome Pepper Flash is installed :-

C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\35.0.1916.153\Pepp erFlash\pepflashplayer.dll

Secure browsing module shows IE11 32 and 64 bit , Chrome 35.xx and Firefox 30.0 as each having Flash installed and up to date .
