highstream Adobe gone insecure??

The following show as insecure this afternoon after a scan:

- Adobe Flash Player 10.0.45.2 - Flash10d.ocx (11/2/09) - this seems to be the current version

- Adobe Flash CS3\Flash.exe - 9.0.0.494 - there were some threads on this and reportedly Secunia fixed the false positive months ago

- (Adobe) NPSWF32_back.dll - file in Opera 10.50b plugins (but exact same file shows ok in Opera 10.10 plugins) - I don't know what function that .dll file serves, if any, but this one doesn't make sense

Any ideas?

hi

I have the same version number listed by psi, however, the flash file is Flash10e.ocx.

You may know how to update and that Flash will often leave old files behind when updating.

If you are unsure or do not know how to sort it out properly see the thread, link below, and look for the long post by Maurice Joyce nearer the end of the thread who gives invaluable advice about this problem.

I hadn't noticed that. Deleting the old .ocx file clears it up. Thanks.

hi

A pleasure, Adobe and Flash are a nightmare but easy once you know how.
