Adobe Adds Auto-Update for Flash Player

It looks like Adobe has introduced a new auto-update feature in the latest version (11.2) of Flash.

Outdated versions of 3rd party applications such as Flash, Acrobat Reader, Java, etc. create security holes which can be exploited.  In recent months, a Java exploit has led to over half a million infected Macs.

The new auto-update feature for Flash Player is an overdue, but much welcomed addition.  This is one of the little pop-up/nags many just close out of and rightfully so.  It’s nice to see the software finally reinforce this itself, instead of relying on the end-user to install new updates.

I am a consignment software specialist, System Administrator for hundreds of consignment workstations across North America, and developer of Peeps' Software! I've been helping consignment & resale store-owners since 2003. I started The Computer Peeps in February of 2010. After 18+ years of working with consignment stores, I understand the unique challenges consignment & resale store-owners face. From electrical issues in old building or strip malls, to advocating for them when their consignment software keeps crashing. I now manage hundreds of computer systems, servers & websites for store-owners all across North America and I am the developer/programmer of Peeps' Software -- the only software written FOR consignment & resale stores specifically.
