Adobe Flash Player 13.0.0.206

Send Article to a Friend

Quickly responding to yet another critical security vulnerability, Adobe has updated the Mac version of the standalone Flash Player to version 13.0.0.206. 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 13.0.0.201 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 13.0.0.206. (Free, 15 MB, release notes, 10.6+)

I think it's safe to assume that _every_ version of Flash has a critical security vulnerability.
