Google Chrome with its integrated flash player was also updated. The 32bit ActiveX version 10.3.181.14 "10q" replaced "10p".

Hi ,

This is noted by the Secunia Advisory 44590 of today (Friday 13th) although version updates are not specified :-

http://secunia.com/advisories/44590/

As yet I have not had any email from Secunia and it is not yet reported in the PSI .

This is the Adobe bulletin :-

Thanks for spotting it xyzzy :))

Take care

Anthony

Some useful changes in FlashPlayer 10.3
Deleting browsing history will now delete the so-called 'Flash cookies'
There is now a Flash entry in Control Panel to modify Flash settings.

In a comment on the ISC page I wrote that the 64bit flash "square" is NOW at 10.3.162.28. That should be STILL instead of NOW, apparently flash "square" was not updated.

I'd prefer "official" download pages instead of third parties, YMMV. Check out http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/alternates...

i just noticed that PSI said my adobe flash player was outdated (10.2.159.1). i uninstalled it using revouninstaller and then ran PSC scan. PSI still says my flash player is outdated. i went to the adobe website and used their flash player uninstaller and then ran PSI scan. PSI still says my flash player is outdated. But flash player is no longer on my computer. What is going on? Here are the two insecure programs that PSI identified:
c:\windows\syswow64\macromed\flash\flash10p.ocx
c:\windows\system32\nacrined\flash\flash10p.ocx

@Muffin

U must COMPLETELY exit these before attempting a Flash uninstall:

Any Adobe programme.

All Browsers

Windows Messenger

Incredimail

PSI prior to version 2

Once done, navigate to those two locations,right click on them & select delete.

thanks so much! i see how this happened. i had psi open when i used revouninstaller and the the flash player uninstaller to uninstall. a "remnant" of flash player was left because psi uses flash player and both unstallers could not unstall that because it was in use.
