Adobe Security Advisory APSB08-011 addresses a number of
vulnerabilities affecting the Adobe Flash player. Flash player
versions 22.214.171.124 and earlier and 126.96.36.199 and earlier are affected.
Further details are available in the US-CERT Vulnerability Notes
An attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities by convincing a user
to visit a website that hosts a specially crafted SWF file. The Adobe
Flash browser plugin is available for multiple web browsers and
operating systems, any of which could be affected.
The impacts of these vulnerabilities vary. The most severe of these
vulnerabilities allows a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code or
conduct cross-site scripting attacks.
Check with your operating system vendor for patches or updates. If you
get the flash player from Adobe, see the Adobe Get Flash page for
information about updates.
These vulnerabilities can be mitigated by disabling the Flash plugin
or by using the NoScript extension to whitelist websites that can
access the Flash plugin. For more information about securely
configuring web browsers, please see the Securing Your Web Browser

Thanks, MEB. The upgrade went quick & well & without a reboot. I am now
v.188.8.131.52, as shown at...
(a) Open Explorer to C:\Windows\Downloaded Program Files.
(b) R-Clk "Shockwave Flash Object" in R-Pane, & select Properties,
Note: I had to go to the site to do it! It did not work to R-Clk the
object I had & select to update it!
Thanks or Good Luck,
There may be humor in this post, and,
Naturally, you will not sue,
Should things get worse after this,
