Adobe has released Adobe Flash Player 31.0.0.108 to address vulnerabilities that could potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system. Adobe recommends users update their product installations to the latest versions:


As of version 11.3 Adobe has two different MSI packages available for download. One MSI (full_flashplayer_win_msi) is targeted for Internet Explorer users. The another (full_flashplayer_win_pl_msi) is targeted for Pluged-in based browsers like Firefox. These can be downloaded from the Adobe Flash Player download page here or by using these links:


Adobe assigned the Flash Player vulnerability a Priority 2 rating, except for Linux (Priority 3). Vulnerabilities categorized as Priority 2 have an elevated risk, but no known exploits. Adobe recommends applying the update that resolves the vulnerability as soon as possible by updating to Flash Player 31.0.0.108. Refer to the Solution chart for the specific updated version for each platform.


Certain web browsers, such as Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge, already have Flash Player built-in. As such, Chrome will automatically update itself when new versions of Flash Player are available. Nonetheless, it is always a good practice to check for updates yourself. You are responsible for keeping yourself safe while online.


Vulnerable versions of Macromedia Flash Player from Adobe are redistributed with Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2, Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 3, and Microsoft Windows XP Professional x64 Edition. Other versions of Windows are not affected or not supported by this security update. Customers with Flash Player installed on other versions of the operating system or customers who have upgraded to Flash Player 7 or higher are encouraged to follow the guidance in the Adobe Security Bulletin APSB06-11.


The software in this list has been tested to determine whether the versions are affected. Other versions either no longer include security update support or may not be affected. To determine the support life cycle for your product and version, visit the Microsoft Support Lifecycle Web site.


This update resolves privately reported vulnerabilities in Macromedia Flash Player from Adobe, version 6.0.84.0 and earlier. Macromedia Flash Player is a third party software application that also was redistributed with Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2, Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 3, and Microsoft Windows XP Professional x64 Edition. Each vulnerability is documented in the "Vulnerability Details" section of this bulletin. The Adobe Security Bulletin APSB06-11, issued September 12, 2006, describes the vulnerabilities and provides the download locations for customers who have installed Flash Player 7 and higher so that you can install the appropriate update based on the version of Flash Player you are using. Customers that have followed the guidance in the Adobe Security Bulletin are not at risk from these vulnerabilities.


Note Microsoft Security Bulletin MS06-020 was released on May 9, 2006 and provided updates for customers using these versions of Flash Player. Customers who do not use version 7, 8, or 9 of Flash Player would, if they have applied MS06-020, have version 6.0.84 of Flash Player.

What is the Enterprise Update Scan Tool (EST)?As part of an ongoing commitment to provide detection tools for bulletin-class security updates, Microsoft delivers a stand-alone detection tool whenever the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA) and the Office Detection Tool (ODT) cannot detect whether the update is required for an MSRC release cycle. This stand-alone tool is called the Enterprise Update Scan Tool (EST) and is designed for enterprise administrators. When a version of the Enterprise Update Scan Tool is created for a specific bulletin, customers can run the tool from a command-line interface (CLI) and view the results of the XML output file. To help customers better utilize the tool, detailed documentation will be provided with the tool. There is also a version of the tool that offers an integrated experience for SMS administrators.


Can I use a version of the Enterprise Update Scan Tool (EST) to determine whether this update is required?Yes. Microsoft has created a version of EST that will determine if you have to apply this update. For download links and more information about the version of EST that is being released this month, see Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 894193. SMS customers should review the following FAQ, Can I use Systems Management Server (SMS) to determine whether this update is required?" for more information about SMS and EST.


Can I use SMS to determine if the Macromedia Flash Player is installed on a system?Yes. SMS can help detect if the Macromedia Flash Player is installed on a system. SMS can search for the existence of the file Flash.ocx. Flash.ocx version 6.0.84.0 or earlier may be vulnerable. This security update installs Flash6.ocx version 6.0.88.0 and removes the version of Flash.ocx it is replacing.


Inclusion in Future Service PacksThe update for this issue may be included in future Service Packs or Update Rollups for Windows versions that included Flash Player in their original distribution.


The English version of this security update has the file attributes that are listed in the following table. The dates and times for these files are listed in coordinated universal time (UTC). When you view the file information, it is converted to local time. To find the difference between UTC and local time, use the Time Zone tab in the Date and Time tool in Control Panel.


Note Geninst.exe is an installer wrapped in an IExpress installer package. This table lists the files included in the IExpress package. This security update installs Flash6.ocx version 6.0.88.0and removes the version of Flash.ocx it is replacing.
