Secunia has found an insecure Flash player (9x) within a Game I downloaded. I don't believe I can fix this since it is embedded . I have already downloaded and installed Flash 10x. Is there anyway to fix this or does it go in the "Ignore" area?
Thanks for any suggestions

It is very unwise to ignore any security issue with the dreaded flash.

If U are sure it is embedded into the programme U should ask the programme vendor to update it yesterday.

Not sure what this game it is but if I were confronted with the issue U describe I would uninstall the game until it is made safe.

It is possible that the vendor will tell U it is used in the game & has no exposure.

If that is the case I would still not ignore it - these vendors do eventualy issue a cosmetic patch & PSI will stop reporting.

If U do ignore U will never know if this action takes place but in the interim U will know U are secure.

Thanks Maurice, sorry if I sounded flip - I have uninstalled the program and contacted the vendor about it - re-ran the scan and all is well. Thanks for the help.
Now we'll see if the vendor is as concerned as they should be.
