Whenever I do a scan with the software inspector, although my main Flash player (in Windows/System32) is shown as up to date, it always flags the separate version of the Flash Player installed with Photoshop as being out of date and thus insecure. However, running an update on Photoshop itself shows Photoshop to be up to date. What other option exists to update the Flash Player within Photoshop, or should I even bother; and if the latter, could you arrange not to flag Flash players within other software which cannot be updated outside updates of the application itself?

Photoshop is not up to date if the embedded flash is insecure. What has happened is Adobe have forgotten to update their own programmes with the insecure flash they created.

This is not the only Adobe product suffering from appalling support.

Its an Adobe own goal & U should really get onto their Tech Support & tell them to fix it.

I hope PSI do not take up your request to stop tracking Adobe elements which tend to litter PC's with insecurities.
