Adobe Flash Player is a plugin included in several browsers (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, Safari...), required to display webpages using the Flash technology.
A patch for Adobe Flash Player has been released to address several security vulnerabilities. If this software is present in your computer, you should uninstall it and upgrade to the last release :
- Save the instructions below and then close all your browsers (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, Safari...)
- Open the Windows Control Panel to uninstall Adobe Flash Player ActiveX (used by Internet Explorer) and Adobe Flash Player Plugin (used by other browsers).
- Click on this link.
- Before clicking on "Download", untick the box to refuse sponsoring software ("McAfee Security Scan" or "Google Chrome").
- Start the installation.
The monthly patches of Windows have been published, it's important to apply these updates :
- If you haven't changed the default settings, Windows Update will apply these updates automatically, you just have to reboot the computer once it's done.
- If you have disabled automatical updates (not recommended), you have to launch Windows Update manually. Open the "Windows Start Menu" and navigate to "Programs" (or "All programs"). When Windows Update is launched, you have to search for updates and apply the recommanded updates. Once it's done, reboot the computer.
We like to keep you informed of the progress of LibreOffice, the excellent free and open-source office suite. We do it again in this article : The Document Foundation has released LibreOffice 4.1.5 in February.
This is not a security update, but it brings a lot of fixes to improve software stability by correcting several bugs. If you are using an older version of LibreOffice (or OpenOffice.org), we invite you to make this update.
To do this, you have to uninstall the old version on your computer, download the new version here (make sure you choose the recommended version : LibreOffice 4.1.5) and install it.
