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Outdated versions of 3rd party applications such as Flash, Acrobat Reader, Java, etc.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 Software Developer, System Administrator, and consignment software specialist. I currently manage hundreds of consignment workstations, point of sale systems, and database servers all across North America and I am the developer of Peeps' Software, Peeps2Go, and Peeps' Consignor Login for iOS and Android. I've been helping consignment & resale store-owners since 2003. I started The Computer Peeps in February of 2010. Peeps' Software launched in 2016 and is now on hundreds of systems all across North America. I have successfully converted dozens of stores from all of the major consignment software systems. After 20 years of working with consignment stores, I understand the unique challenges consignment & resale store-owners face. From electrical issues in old buildings or strip malls, to advocating for them when their old consignment software keeps crashing.
