The plugin check page says that Adobe Flash Player is vulnerable and I need to update it.
I have a problem, I instaled Windows 8.1 and everything is great.
I have one problem, few times a day Adobe Flash player installer ask me to update it, and every time i do update it it start downloading update and it show Update cant be done check if you are conected to internet, i am going crazy with that, i uninstaled Flash player, i blocked it in Firewall after it and it still ask to update, even i dont have it any more on my pc...
But when you click on Windows Plugin-based browsers Download EXE Installer, it downloads .296, not .287 (and due to vague file naming you can't even know that till after you install it). Firefox Plugin Check says that 18.104.22.1686 is vulnerable and needs to be updated.
Which is good, it's what you want, but anybody just reading the page would assume that they haven't found the correct version and probably wouldn't download it since it says it's the one they already have. But if you click Update Now it takes you to download the same version.
Respectfully, /Will Sadkin I submit that FF shouldn't offer an "update now" button if there is no actual update available.
This is what leads to the described "infinite update loop," because people assume that if it offers "update now," then they're *out of date,* not just vulnerable.
Could FF instead grey out the "update now" unless/until there's a patch available?
Respectfully, /Will Sadkin Ah yes, I noticed that in another thread after posting that reply, sorry.
hello, adobe has released a critical patch to mitigate yet another vulnerability in its flash plugin, which is reportedly already exploited in the wild.
https://helpx.adobe.com/security/products/flash-player/apsa15-01please update to Adobe Flash Player version 22.214.171.1246 as soon as possible, which you can download from the windows-exe for plugin-based browsers).
- the download link in philipp's post takes you to a page which does not appear to have 126.96.36.1996.
