After reading a notice from Kim Komando about a new version of Flash, I updated and installed to the most secure newest version. Now my Secunia doesn't show Adobe Flash listed in my programs that are installed, Any others having this problem?

My Active X Adobe flash was no longer listed after the recent update, then it reappeared briefly yesterday and now it's gone again. This has been the pattern for the past month or so.

Yes. In my case, the Adobe Flash Player 11 Plugin for Firefox is listed (in main Scan Results and Secure Browsing), but the installed and enabled ActiveX control with IE9 for the same Flash Player version is ignored in both result locations. (I keep both browsers so I may switch if one has problems.) Therefore, after updating just the Firefox Plugin and temporarily ignoring the IE ActiveX control, PSI 2.0.0.3003 indicates a 100% System Score, despite reports (SA52116, CVE-2013-0633, Adobe Security Bulletin APSB13-04) indicating a Secunia severity rating of "Extremely Critical (5 of 5)", and Adobe reporting (http://www.adobe.com/support/security/bulletins/ap...) that the vulnerability "is being exploited in the wild in targeted attacks" and "The exploit for CVE-2013-0633 targets the ActiveX version of Flash Player on Windows". If there are ongoing problems recognizing the Flash Player ActiveX control, PSI is currently disregarding one of the most commonly used, but unfortunately also frequently and severely vulnerable programs.
