Flash 10.1.102 released

Adobe Flash 10.1.102 was released on Nov 4, 2010: Google Chrome was also updated to update the bundled Flash.

A number of vulnerabilities were fixed, at least one of which was reportedly used by malicious websites to install malware.

SecBrowsing was updated to point to the latest version.

Updating Flash

If your Flash version in Chrome is out-of-date, one of a few things could be happening:

  • You have not restarted Chrome in a while. If you just restart, you should get the latest version.
  • You are on the beta or the developer channel. If you don't know what this is, you are probably not on them. If you are, please wait a few days. Chrome will ask you to update itself. Sometimes Flash for dev channel is released a few days later than stable.
  • You are not using the bundled Flash plugin that ships with Chrome. Type "about:plugins" and then "Details" on the top-right. Find the Flash files you use, and enable the bundled Flash, which is typically the most up-to-date.

If you also use Flash in Firefox or Safari, use one of these browsers and get the latest version at
