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 220.127.116.11 and earlier versions for Linux
- Adobe Flash Player 18.104.22.168 and earlier versions for Android 4.x
- Adobe Flash Player 22.214.171.124 and earlier versions for Android 3.x and 2.x
- Adobe AIR 126.96.36.19910 and earlier versions for Windows and Macintosh, SDK (includes AIR for iOS) and Android
The new version numbers are:
- 11.5.502.110 for Windows and Mac OS X
- 188.8.131.52 for Linux
- 184.108.40.206 for Android 4.x
- 220.127.116.11 for Android 2.x and 3.x
Users of Google’s Chrome browser will get an updated version, 18.104.22.168, 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.
