Due to recent security vulnerabilities in Flash Player, Adobe has released version 126.96.36.199 (188.8.131.524 for Linux) this week for all platforms. All operating systems on the now out-of-date versions are vulnerable and recommended to update to the latest version. Additionally because of the severity of these vulnerabilities, Apple has blocked all out-of-date Flash Player plug-ins for OS X.
From Apple: “Due to security issues in older versions, Apple has updated the web plug-in blocking mechanism to disable all versions prior to Flash Player 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11.”
