A new version of Flash was released by Adobe earlier this week.
Flash 188.8.131.527 fixes a single security vulnerability in earlier versions.
If you use Flash, and in particular if you use a web browser with Flash enabled, you should make sure you’re running the latest version.
The easiest way to determine whether you’re running Flash is to visit the Flash Player Help page on the Adobe web site. Click the
Check Now button to see the version your browser is running. Further down the page, there’s a small Flash demo that you can use to verify that Flash is installed and running in your browser. Your browser may also block Flash or prompt you to allow Flash to run.
Also on that page there’s a link to Download the latest version of Flash Player.
Adobe will stop supporting and updating Flash after December 31, 2020. At that point we’ll be recommending that everyone completely disable and/or remove Flash from all their computers, unless there’s some specific reason it’s still needed. And the world will be a much better place.
