Hola Thug, thanks for the update and link.

Did my usual Saturday morning scan with Secunia and it's telling me my little machine needs some patching/updating - the usual suspects: Chrome / Firefox / blah, blah, blah.

On the list is my Adobe Flash Player but every time I attempt to download from the Adobe website, I keep getting this obnoxious message:

NOT FOUND

The requested URL /bin/install_flashplayer11x32_mssd_aih.exe was not found on this server.


Anyone else having this issue?

It's Saturday morning here on the Eastern Seaboard and I'm headed off to find another cup of coffee but will be checking in all day.

Onward and mostly patched,

Winterland

Perhaps just some issue on Adobe's side of things.

I uninstalled Flash Player on both my wife's laptop and my machine, kept checking back at the Adobe site and finally got the update.

Installed, rebooted, scanned again with Secunia (love that app!) and *poof* we're back in business.

Sorry to trouble anyone, hope everyone's having a great Saturday.

Thanks for letting us know you were successful in updating. I checked and didn't have any issues personally and was looking for anyone else having the same thing happen you did and failed to find one.
