One of the most popular plugins and applications on the web today is Adobe’s Flash Player. YouTube videos, online games and other content all use Flash Player plugins.
Unfortunately, older versions of Flash Player had serious security issues and the bad guys on the Internet are using these holes to download and install malware, scareware, spyware and spam bots on unsuspecting user’s computers. You can protect yourself by insuring that you have the latest version of Flash Player installed on your computer. Click the link below to check your version of Flash. The current version you should have is 126.96.36.199 (188.8.131.52 for IE in Windows 8.1 and 10) [8/13/19]
If you do not have the latest version, you should immediately upgrade. It is free. You may need to completely uninstall your current version. Adobe has a free uninstall program HERE
NOTE: If you use Internet Explorer or Edge on Windows 10 or, Google Chrome on any operating system as your web browser, Flash is updated automatically for you.
