Re: Adobe Flash Player 11.3.300.257

said by OZO:

Why to allow Macromedia Flash to elevate its privileges on your computer in the first place? Then one has to create a complex sandbox to keep it isolated or to run special anti-malware programs all the times on the background to harness it from all malicious actions that it could perform. Just think about it for a sec and you'll come to a simple solution that everyone could/should do. Edit your registry and, if you see it, remove this key immediately:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Low Rights\ElevationPolicy\{FAF199D2-BFA7-4394-A4DE-044A08E59B32}]
Then you may go ahead and visit any malicious site you want... :)

I think last time I did this, I got a BSOD watching youtube.
