Is Belarc Advisor finding something, or is Flash Player up to date?

  1. Just started using Belarc Advisor.
    Glad to see some threads with information about it... like the security score question.
    I was going there next.

    BUT... Here is my question:
    Belarc is telling me that my Flash Player (Firefox, I assume... hmmm... I'll need to check MSIE).
    is out of date and vulnerable. See screenshot.... belarc.jpg belarc.jpg.

    But checking Firefox, and Installed Programs, they both say I have the latest version.
    See Flashplayer.jpg. flashplayer.jpg

    Any advice?

    ===Add / Edit ===
    Looks like it was Microsoft Internet Explorer version that was out of date.
    Trying to get it to update now.
    So... we can keep or delete the thread, as mods think best! Thanks.

    @ Cobalt006... that is what I discovered. (see my Add/Edit)
    The version number Belarc cited did not match anything I could find,
    until I checked MSIE (which I almost never use).

    @ learninmypc - Thanks... good post for others.
    I had used that in order to update within Firefox,
    because... I had learned of the exploit being targeted @ Firefox ,
    Since I had already updated it, I was surprised when Belarc said I had not.

    I just had not considered that it would be
    necessary to update from within EACH and every installed web-browser.
    Hardly ever use anything but Firefox,
    so the possibility of needing to update MSIE did not occur to me,
    until I was writing my original post.

    Thanks for your interest!
    Maybe the thread will help others?
