After reports of a critical security vulnerability appearing in the wild and affecting Windows users via a Flash file embedded in Word or Excel documents, Adobe has released Flash Player 10.2.159.1. Although only Windows systems were targeted in the attacks, Adobe recommends that all Macintosh, Windows, Linux, and Solaris users of previous versions of Flash update to Flash Player 10.2.159.1 right away. Google Chrome builds Flash Player in; if you’re using Google Chrome, make sure to update to version 10.0.648.205 or later (choose Chrome > About Google Chrome to check the version number and update if necessary). Also affected is Adobe AIR; update to version 188.8.131.5240 or later if you’re using any Adobe AIR-based applications. (Free updates, download sizes vary.)
Adding Links in Snow Leopard's Mail
Apple Mail in Snow Leopard now has a Command-key shortcut for adding a link to an email.
If you use plain-text email, this will not be helpful at all, but if you send styled email, it's a nice shortcut for adding URLs to your email messages. Simply select the word(s) you want to make into a link, press Command-K, and enter the URL to build into the link.

Somehow, I don't think that the box would have blended in so well if Apple had designed that dialog box.
Flash = always one problem or another, imo. I keep it off by default unless I see a specific need on a particular page.
