Security update available for Adobe Flash Player

Adobe has released a new update to its popular Flash Player, the software used by most of the video streaming sites like Hulu and YouTube.

All our readers are strongly recommended to update it as soon as possible and to configure the software to automatically check for available updates.

You can do that by periodically checking and downloading the latest version from the Adobe Flash Player Download Center or, better, by installing it via the auto-update mechanism within the product when prompted.

Due to its popularity (the player is installed in more than 90% of computers worldwide) Flash is the subject of continuous "attention" by cyber-criminals and it is vital to keep it up-to-date to make sure that your computer is not exposed to the worse Internet threats.
