September 2011 Critical Critical Adobe Flash patches

September 23, 2011

On September 21, Adobe released critical patches for Adobe Flash Player. These patches fix vulnerabilities that could cause your host to be infected or hacked if you view malicious Flash content.

To patch Adobe Flash Player, go to:

http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer

and upgrade your version of Flash Player to the latest version.

If you view Flash content in both Internet Explorer and another browser, such as Firefox, you will need to patch Flash Player for both types of browsers. Note: Google Chrome should automatically update itself to use the latest version of Flash.

If you are using Flash on Android or Linux, see:

http://www.adobe.com/support/security/bulletins/apsb11-26.html

for update instructions.

To see which version of Flash Player you are running, visit:

If you have any questions or problems applying these patches, please contact the SCS Help Desk at x8-4231 or send mail to help@cs.cmu.edu.

Thank you for your attention,

SCS Help Desk
