Serious Post. Update Flash ASAP

Sorry for the lack of updates this weekend… no excuse.

What I do have is a plea for any readers to update Flash in all browsers on your machine. A pretty nasty exploit has been published in the past few days that takes advantage of browser weaknesses (nope, using FireFox instead of IE won’t help you here) as well as all previous versions of Flash installed on those browsers.

While there aren’t any browser fixes at this time, Adobe has patched the Flash issue in their most recent Flash update so head over to Adobe and make sure you have the most recent version asap.

The Adobe update page is here – don’t forget to uncheck the shady auto-opt-in toolbar download before you install.

For anyone interested in geeking out over the specifics of the exploit you can find it explained here
