INTERNET SOFT UNDERBELLY Adobe Flash has been flushed with a range of updates that should make it less onerous for at least four weeks.

The patch whack on the software is a big one, and sees Adobe level 79 fixes at it and its users. There is some argument that reckons that Flash should be linked with a sack, some rocks and the sea, but Adobe insists on patching up its old pal.

This is the last of the Adobe releases this year, so you might assume it is something of a best of. It is not, it is a package of bandages that cover threats that can be considered critical and thus urgent.

Judging by the noises coming from the security commentary community, these are not patches that you want to sit on so get applying.

 

The update has been out for a few day but I thought I would post this to make people aware of the update.

Two different versions released, 20.0.0.228 for Internet Explorer, Edge & Chrome and 20.0.0.235 for Firefox & Safari...not to mention all the others. More confusion to throw in the mix.
