What’s up With Adobe Flash? More Security Updates

If there is one product that seems to call for updates on a daily basis, it is Adobe Flash.  No wonder Steve Jobs banned it form the iPad.  There is a new threat for a security vulnerability know as a Remote Code Execution.  This is when you visit a website, and get a “drive-by download” or malware installation that happens just from being there.  This update closes that security hole.  You can read more on Sophos.

So when Adobe Flash asks your permission to update itself yet again, please allow it to happen.
