Hey there,

Been searching the Google's to see if Flash 10,3,180,42 (beta) suffers from the recent 0 day exploit or not. It was released prior to the exploit so I'm guessing it does, but currently it's listed as safe on PSI and I can't find any more info.

If you have any more info, please do share.

Cheers

Are U sure it is showing as secure in the Secure Browsing Section?

I saw it on a PC today that said it was secure in the Scanned Programme Section but not secure in Secure Browsing.

Yup - I'm fully secure in both sections. I have Flash 10.3 for IE and Other browsers installed. I would show you a screenshot but can't see the option here.

--edit did a scan and Safari for Windows is listed as vulnerable, but it is the latest version.

If it showing secure in both sections then Secunia are saying it is registered on their database & that version is secure.

I will upload it & give it a whirl to double check for U.

Alrighty then - here's a link to the Adobe Page

http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/flashplatformru...

Not that you should trust links from strangers :-D

It's showing my security status as 97% on the left but PSI says 100% - must be a delay in the update to the site..

U locked the thread! I have reopened it.

The latest Beta is 10.3.180.65 - It is that one I saw that was showing as vulnerable in the PSI Secure Browsing Section. That should not be taken too seriously - PSI does not normally monitor BETA versions.

Personally in these uncertain times with Flash I would revert back to the stable version released on the 14th April. That said, if PSI is showing version 10.3.180.42 as secure in the Browser Section U could just leave it.

Hmmm, I had a look around Adobe and didn't see that it had changed from 42 to 65. Will update - always best to be on the latest - thanks!

Mind you - could roll back to the latest 10.2 as you say.... decisions decisions.

I would roll back. PSI will tell U 10.3.180.65 is vulnerable - not sure that is true because,as previously stated,they do not normally asset track BETA versions.

Hope this helps.

Let me know when U want me to relock the thread - it will then prevent "tag on" posts & protect your mail box.

Hi ,

Google Chrome browser Stable and Beta versions have patched/updated to their own 10.2. versions of Flash .

The Dev Channel and Canary versions (updated/released since the Flash vulnerability was publicised) are both using the Beta 2 ...65 version of Flash ; in theory Chrome disables any insecure plug-ins and Flash remains enabled atm . Unfortunately the PSI does not track the non-stable versions of Chrome so I cannot "see" the PSI' response for any confirmation . I cannot find any other confirmation elsewhere .

If in any doubt whatsoever , I would heavily endorse rolling back to a known secure version of Flash :ie: 10.2.159.1 ActiveX or NPAPI .

EDIT: Actually , I just rechecked and the Canary is now showing version 10.3.181.5 which I cannot find listed anywhere ; whilst the Dev Channel is unchanged as 10.3.180.65 and still enabled ?!.

Take care

Anthony
