Adobe flash player constantly updating
Embedded within the installer's code is a copyright message, referencing an Israeli company that develops the Install Core software installation platform, and has been criticised in the past for "turning a blind eye to malware": Two months ago we described how an earlier version of OSX/Install Core had been spread after Mac users began to see bogus pop-up warnings about Adobe Flash requiring an update, which resulted in scareware being installed onto their computers.In both this and the previous instance, online criminals signed their malicious code with an Apple developer certificate, allowing the malware to bypass a key part of OS X's built-in defence.Intego security experts have identified the rogue package installer as a variant of OSX/Install Core, and have updated Intego Virus Barrier definitions to provide protection.The in-the-wild attack has been spread in the form of a Mac Package installer file, also known a flat package, and has been signed with a legitimate Developer ID certificate — effectively tricking OS X's built-in Gatekeeper security to believe that the files can be trusted and are not malicious.You may have constantly seen the notifications popping up to tell you that an update is available for the software, especially when your computer is always connected online. There will also be times when you get a notification again even after a week or days before you last updated.Sometimes, you’ll think that your PC or Mac is resetting, deleting some of your newly installed files.Aside from essential bug fixes, updated versions of the software will also allow you to enjoy a wide range of online multimedia content made with modern integrated development environment (IDE) software.Mac User’s Guide to Updating Adobe Flash Player If you’re a Mac user, you can visit Adobe’s webpage for downloading the software to their computer (https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/).
Mac users are once again being urged to exercise caution when installing updates to Adobe Flash Player, after a fake update was discovered infecting computers.
I can't find any details about updates to the 10.0 release, so my census starts with version 10.1, which was released exactly 16 months ago.
All of the following updates are for Windows; you'll find minor variations in version numbers and release dates if you look at other platforms, although the general timeline is the same. By my count, the Flash Player for Windows has been updated 17 times in the 16 months since Flash Player 10.1 was officially released.
The single most common complaint I heard was about the frequency of updates for the Flash Player, and what a pain in the rear the update process is, especially for Windows users.
But one thing I have never seen is an actual count of just how often the Flash Player gets updated.
But you may be wondering a few things, such as what the heck is a plug-in?
