Emergency update for Flash

If you use a web browser with Flash enabled, you should stop what you’re doing and update Flash.

According to the associated Adobe security bulletin, Flash 21.0.0.182 fixes twenty-three security vulnerabilities, including one (CVE-2016-1010) that is being actively exploited on the web.

The release notes for Flash 21.0.0.182 provide additional details. The new version fixes several bugs that are unrelated to security, and adds some new features.

As usual, Chrome will update itself with the new version of Flash, and Internet Explorer and Edge on newer versions of Windows will be updated via Windows Update.

About jrivett

Jeff Rivett has worked with and written about computers since the early 1980s. His first computer was an Apple II+, built by his father and heavily customized. Jeff's writing appeared in Computist Magazine in the 1980s, and he created and sold a game utility (Ultimaker 2, reviewed in the December 1983 Washington Apple Pi Journal) to international markets during the same period. Proceeds from writing, software sales, and contract programming gigs paid his way through university, earning him a Bachelor of Science (Computer Science) degree at UWO. Jeff went on to work as a programmer, sysadmin, and manager in various industries. There's more on the About page, and on the Jeff Rivett Consulting site.
