I went to use the Software Inspector by Secunia today, after reading about it on this website. It said I need to update my Macromedia Flash Player, but when I go to the link, it takes me to Adobe Flash Player. When I got to Adobe, I do not see a Macromedia Flash Player even listed. Did they discontinue it and rename it Adobe Flash Player? This is the message it gave me below.

The detected version installed on your system is 6.0.79.0, however, the latest secure version released by the vendor, fixing one or more vulnerabilities, is 6.0.88.0. :thumbsup:

Adobe Systems acquired Macromedia and its product portfolio (including Flash) on December 3, 2005.

So yes, it was renamed Adobe Flash Player.

Thanks, I would hope then that Secunia Software Inspector will make note of that in their scan. It says I am vulnerable with older versions of that software. But I cannot find it to delete it. I do have the Adobe Flash Player, and it is updated. THANK YOU.
