Come on I just finished updating 5 pc's with Java and MS updates. I wish Adobe had release this update earlier today.
As soon as I saw that the new Chrome version included a Flash update I knew the others would follow.

Supposedly that's normal for the control panel to show the 32 bit version. Just make sure the add/remove section shows the x64 bit version installed. Doing my updates now.

Google Chrome? I am guess it will auto update at some point, yes? Otherwise how do I make it do so manually? According to the site I have version 11,1,102,55 installed.

To check manually, click the wrench icon in the top right corner, then click the "about Google Chrome" link. A popup box will appear and say whether or not it's up to date. If it isn't it will update to the latest and then ask you to relaunch to finish the install.

Thank you. I did as you suggested and it did update. Not sure why it isn't "auto" updating.

Not sure in your case, but I leave my Chrome open all the time and have noticed that sometimes it will not auto update, but if I close it and reopen it, it triggers it to update if there is a new version available.

They are also available in MSI installer varieties (~4 or 9 MB respectively):

Uninstaller (229 KB):
hxxp://download.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/current/uninstall_flash_player_32bit.exe
hxxp://download.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/current/uninstall_flash_player_64bit.exe


The 64bit versions include both the 32 & 64-bit versions of Flash, but installer itself will only run/install on a 64-bit OS.
(So if you have a 32-bit OS, they will do you no good.)

From, Sandboxes are Overrated (Told You 4 Years Ago).

Exotic XSS bug in Adobe Flash controlled users' Web accounts

The universal XSS, or cross-site scripting, vulnerability is present in all versions of Flash, but was only being actively exploited in versions that worked with Microsoft's Internet Explorer browser. In a security bulletin, Adobe credited Google for discovery of the bug and warned it "could be used to take actions on a user's behalf on any website or webmail provider, if the user visits a malicious website." Representatives with Adobe and Google didn't elaborate on the in-the-wild attacks or the underlying bug, except for an Adobe spokeswoman saying Google first reported it on February 10. ...

Thank you.

Beware! This update CHANGED my Global Storage settings and Privacy settings. I don't understand why the settings that are available in Start/Control Panel/Flash Player are different from what is available on Adobe's website. I always check both places after an update. At least, Adobe finally fixed the display problem for the Settings panel. That problem appeared when Adobe first put Flash Player in the Control Panel. It has taken all this time for them to fix it.

As do I. And it's pretty typical that the settings are changed (or go back to 'default settings' just like they want it to), when a new version is installed.
Then again (as most here know), I'm an OCD kind of guy. I always COMPLETELY uninstall the old version of flash, using the flash uninstaller (which is generally the same version number as the latest version of flash, as far as I've seen in the past). Not only that, but I check for any other remnants, even after using the uninstaller.
Then, after installing the new version, I recheck my settings both in the relatively 'new' flash section in the control panel, as well as the good ol' on-line 'global settings manager'.
After all, it's stuff like this that gives me a reason to live.

Some people think I'm absolutely crazy and way over the edge. I suspect they're probably right.

Someone highlighted this elsewhere but this should be pointed out - Adobe have changed the online settings manager.

Why do I say this ?

The URL did not use the name Macromedia previously, thus they are suspect.

The link I've had in my bookmarks to access the settings manager for a long time always had macromedia in it.

Thanks for this, I was sure Adobe were pulling a fast one.

I have the link "out there" for some to have a look under the hood - once I know more - will post back.

Thanks for the observation on Macromedia.

This is the link I have had for IE for a long time:

On Fx, the same link is slightly different. It is missing the "#117118" part.
