Adobe Security Update for Flash Player

Adobe has released new versions of its Flash Player media software for all platforms, to address seven security vulnerabilities.   Adobe says that the following software versions are affected:

  • Adobe Flash Player 11.4.402.287 and earlier versions for Windows and Macintosh
  • Adobe Flash Player 11.2.202.243 and earlier versions for Linux
  • Adobe Flash Player 11.1.115.20 and earlier versions for Android 4.x
  • Adobe Flash Player 11.1.111.19 and earlier versions for Android 3.x and 2.x
  • Adobe AIR 3.4.0.2710 and earlier versions for Windows and Macintosh, SDK (includes AIR for iOS) and Android

You can check the version of Flash Player that you have by visiting Adobe’s About Flash page.  More information is available in the Adobe Product Security Bulletin [APSB12-24].

The new version numbers are:

  • 11.5.502.110 for Windows and Mac OS X
  • 11.2.202.251 for Linux
  • 11.1.115.27 for Android 4.x
  • 11.1.111.24 for Android 2.x and 3.x

Users of Google’s Chrome browser will get an updated version, 11.5.31.2, bundled with Chrome 23, also released today.

Because Flash Player is so widely installed across platforms, it is a tempting target for attackers.  I recommend that you update your systems as soon as you conveniently can.  You can obtain the new versions from the Flash Player Download Center.  Windows users should note that they may need two updates: one for Internet Explorer, and one for other browsers.
