    Adobe have released an update for Flash Player 9 and 10 to fix a critical security vulnerability. It is available from http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

    For more details on the vulnerability see http://www.adobe.com/support/security/bull.../apsb09-10.html
    Adobe Reader is also susceptible to this vulnerability, a fix is due soon.

    I have Adobe Flash Player 10 Active X and the plug in, do I need both on the same computer? I would like to be sure before I install the security update. I think the plug in was installed for Firefox (although I could be mistaken).

    It has just taken me over an hour to update all of the Adobe applications on my PC and to satisfy Secunia PCI that I have really got rid of every single insecure DLL that seemed to be scattered all over the disk. That was VERY hard work, with much manual moving and deleting of files.

    Adobe doesn't make it easy. I also had to resort to manual cleaning-up actions.

    (Secunia now tells me that Firefox is insecure for browsing, just like Internet Explorer...)
