Adobe Flash Player
freeware, released 21/09/15

Critical security release, download available @

Beware unnecessary pre-ticked 'optional extras'.

I would suggest that Adobe Flash users consider enabling “Click to Play” in their browser.

With “Click to Play” enabled, your browser won’t render potentially malicious Flash content unless and until you give it specific permission. In other words, a maliciously coded Flash file won’t run unless you give it permission, rather than automatically executing when you visit a webpage.

Adobe has released a critical software update to fix nearly two-dozen security holes in its Flash Player browser plugin. Separately, I want to take a moment to encourage users who have Adobe Shockwave Player installed to finally junk this program; turns out Shockwave — which comes with its own version of Flash — is still many versions behind in bundling the latest Flash fixes.

If you use and need Flash Player, it’s time to update the program (the latest version is for Windows and Mac users). Google Chrome and Internet Explorer bundle their own versions of Flash (also now at v.; each should auto-update to the latest. Find out if you have Flash installed and its current version number by visiting this page.
