Adobe Flash Player Update Fixes 32 Security Flaws

It should tell you something that Adobe's latest Flash Player update, released in response to ongoing exploits of a particular vulnerability, actually plugs 32 holes in the buggy software.

The Metasploit Framework has code that targets the critical flaw previously reported, so don't mess around in getting this update installed. You'll need to run the update for each browser on your system, so if you use Internet Explorer and Firefox, remember to update both.

You can test which version of Flash Player is currently installed by visiting this site with each of your browsers. You can then download and install the correct version at the Flash Player Download page.
