Hi,

this is my first post here. I have the same problem with the adobe 10 flashplayer as Turtle 173. If u have an insecure adobe flashplayer everytime it is the same shit. The secunia engine says: hey, u have an insecure adobe flashplayer although I have downloaded the newest version of adobe flashplayer 10 (10.0.42.34) And before I have installed the actual version I have uninstalled the older version with the adobe uninstaller. I dont understand that. Who can help me to solve this problem? Thanks in advance!

michael

Michael,

UPDATING ADOBE FLASH
====================

Adobe have not mastered the art of completely removing all their files during an uninstall nor have they widely publicised the fact that they do not support removal using Control Panel>Add/Remove.

To successfully remove a vulnerability from Adobe Flash you should:

1. Download & use the Flash Uninstaller from here:

#####Before actually running the uninstaller it is a good idea to close all browsers,PSI and any other programme U think may be using Flash #####

http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/141/tn_14157.html

2. Reboot to clear out any left over ocx files.

3. Rescan using PSI - if there are any insecure Flash elements left what is the path to them? U should not proceed to stage 4 until all U clear any problems found.(The PSI overview page may look a little odd because it uses Flash for the pictorials)

Note: At this stage,if PSI finds any elements of Flash in the C:\i386 folder or on any drive other than C that is an OEM reinstallation partition (normally D drive) or a drive U use solely to backup your work U can safely create an ignore rule.


4. Reinstall the latest Internet Explorer Flash Player from here:

http://www.filehippo.com/download_flashplayer_ie/ (I strongly advise U do not select the Beta version unless an advanced user)

4A.If U are also using Firefox, Opera and other Gecko-based browsers U need this link as well:

http://www.filehippo.com/download_flashplayer_fire... (I strongly advise U do not select the Beta version unless an advanced user)

5. Go to add/remove & double check Adobe have not installed the useless Adobe Download Manager - if U see an entry remove it.

Hi Maurice,

thanks for ur fast help. And sorry for my bad English. I follow your first advice. But after restart my pc and rescan with secunia I have the same problem as before. Secunia says: Insecure Adobe FlashPlayer: C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash\Flash10c.ocx. But if I look in this folder there is no file Flash10c.ocx. The folder is empty !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What can I do in that case????

Weird. If Secunia has found it then it exists.

Go to Start>search> type in C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash\Flash10c.ocx

Make sure all the options are available (hidden files etc)

Once found delete from there

FWIW ; When helping someone to update today we experienced a considerable time lag (over 2 hours) with PSI continuing to show Flash with the "insecure" version 10.0.32.18 while the "open folder" link opened/showed the Flash folder as up to date version 10.0.42.34 . It also failed to recognise the XP OS update and still hasn't as yet .

Must be Gremlin day for everybody :((

Quick note - I have noticed that if Secunia PSI is open and you have investigated a file, it frequently leaves an open handle on the file, thus preventing deletion by the uninstaller.

@meintower ,

I have no idea why you would wish to associate me with your socio-political prejudices ; also you may well be unaware that your wishes for 2010 are considered unlucky/bring bad luck in many countries - including the one in which I am living - when proffered before the first of January 2010 .

It's a big world out here , come down from your tower .

Take care
Anthony
