    Adobe Patches Flash Player Bug as Hackers Attack IE for Windows

    The vulnerability exists in Flash Player versions 11.2.202.233 and earlier for Windows, Macintosh and Linux systems, as well as versions 11.1.115.7 and earlier for Android 4.x and versions 11.1.111.8 and earlier for Android versions 3.x and 2.x. The company said the plan to include a Google Play link for Android users at some point today so that they can get the update for their devices.

    Adobe Flash Player and Java are both confusing to me. Are they necessary? I assume I have Flash because I've had a pop up this past week but was in the middle of something so just clicked on 'remind me later'.

    Flash is used to play most videos on web sites, so you probably need that: What is Flash?

    Java is used less often for interactive web pages, so you may not need it : What Is Java and Do I Need It?

    One the advice received here in the Lounge last year, I totally uninstalled Java and have had no problems running anything.
