It seems like Adobe releases new critical security updates for their Flash Player software about about as often as the sun rises above the eastern horizon. And as luck would have it, they have just released another one.
This update fixes a dangerous flaw in the software that hackers are actively using to attack some systems running Internet Explorer and/or Firefox.
In my opinion, the best way to fix this flaw (and prevent new ones from affecting you in the future) is to simply disable Flash altogether as explained in this post.
Thanks to HTML 5, you won’t need flash to view up-to-date websites so you can safely disable it. If you disable it and later find that your favorite website is broken, you can always re-enable it with a few mouse clicks.
If you find that you do need to keep Flash enabled on your system in order to visit your favorite website, I strongly recommend that you click here to update it to the latest version immediately.
