Safe Computing...

Today 9/July/15

Adobe has released security updates for Adobe Flash Player for Windows,
Macintosh and Linux. These updates address vulnerabilities that could
potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system. Adobe
recommends users update their product installations to the latest versions.

To see which version of Flash you have installed, check this link:
https://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/
If you use multiple browsers, perform the check for each browser you have
installed on your system.

Although Adobe Flash may be configured to automatically update on many
users’ computers, some users have reported that it can sometimes take days
before they a security update is rolled out to them. For that reason, you
may prefer to visit Adobe’s site directly to download the latest version:
http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
but beware potentially unwanted add-ons, like McAfee Security Scan. To
avoid this, uncheck the pre-checked box before downloading, or grab your
OS-specific Flash download from here:
http://www.adobe.com/products/flashp...ribution3.html

Adobe Flash Player installed with Google Chrome, as well as Internet
Explorer on Windows 8.x, should update automatically.
Windows users who browse the Web with anything other than Internet Explorer
may need to apply this patch twice, once with IE and again using the
alternative browser (Firefox, Opera, e.g.).

Windows users should take full advantage of the Enhanced Mitigation
Experience Toolkit (EMET), a free tool from Microsoft that can help Windows
users beef up the security of third-party applications:
