Quickly responding to yet another critical security vulnerability, Adobe has updated the Mac version of the standalone Flash Player to version 18.104.22.168. According to this Adobe security bulletin, the update patches an exploit that has been used to target Flash Player users on the Windows platform to take control of a system remotely. But because this threat can also be exploited on Mac (and Linux) systems, Adobe recommends all users update Flash Player for Mac 22.214.171.124 and earlier to this new release. To see which version of Flash you have installed, visit this Adobe page. If you use the Google Chrome Web browser, make sure to close and restart it to get Chrome 34.0.1847.131, which includes Flash Player 126.96.36.199. (Free, 15 MB, release notes, 10.6+)
Removing Photos from iPhoto
Despite iPhoto's long history, many people continue to be confused about exactly what happens when you delete a photo. There are three possibilities.
If you delete a photo from an album, book, card, calendar, or saved slideshow, the photo is merely removed from that item and remains generally available in your iPhoto library.
If, however, you delete a photo while in Events or Photos view, that act moves the photo to iPhoto's Trash. It's still available, but...
If you then empty iPhoto's Trash, all photos in it will be deleted from the iPhoto library and from your hard disk.
