A big thanks goes out to Brian Krebs for the heads up. According to his site, there is a new update to Adobe’s Flash Player, bringing the current version up to 10.1. On top of a number of flaws from the 10.0.45.2 version, Adobe has also addressed a somewhat major concern wherein a compromised machine could be taken over by an attacker.
Some comments on Krebs’ site are saying that they’re unable to install the new version until they’ve first uninstalled the old. I didn’t have that issue on Chrome, under Windows 7, but you might want to do an uninstall then install just to be safe.
