I was in this boat too. I thoroughly removed all references to AF 10.x but to no avail - Secunia still reports they are vunerable. I went through all of the updates - still no change. I need help too

Use Flash uninstaller to get rid of all copies of flash (before using it close all programs, including browsers & PSI)
http://download.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/cur...

Here you can check your flash version: http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/
If it's current, it may mean that it's other copy of Flash (not the one used by browser) that is insecure. Anyway, Flash uninstaller should be able to uninstall it...

I tried all that - no go. Checked the registry, nothing, did a search, one reference in my USB extension HD, cleared that. Secunia is the only one now reporting these 6 programs and repeated scans does not get rid of them. reboot no good either. Any more suggestions?

there is an interesting article on the Secunia Blog about the insecurity of Adobe Reader that throws some light on this problem.

Ya'all might try first uninstalling Adobe Flash, Adobe Shockwave, and Adobe Air from Add and Remove Programs. Then run the Flash Uninstaller that is supposed to knock out all earlier versions of Flash. Note that the Flash Uninstaller may set flash10b.ocx for removal after reboot. It seems that the key is to uninstall Shockwave (if you have Shockwave installed) and to also do a reboot after running the Flash Uninstaller. That should then knock out the insecure version of the ocx file.

After you install the latest Flash version, you will also have to install it again if IE is not your default browser. Note that Adobe insists on installing their Adobe Download Manager when you install the Flash ActiveX plugin into IE. I uninstalled Adobe Download Manager since I didn't ask for it and I don't want it.

Yesterday I installed v. 10.0.32.18. First installation failed because
PSI marked version as insecure. I had to delete te file: c:\windows\system32\macromed\flash\flash10.ocx. Tis file was marked
by PSI as insecure. I assume that during update to new version the old
ocx file was not changed. After deleting this file update was OK and
program marked as patched and safe.

If you click "technical details" Secunia will show you patch to the file - use Windows Exlorer, go there and right click the file - if you dig deep enough, you will be able to see, what version it its. If it's really the old one, try all the tips mentioned here before - close all programs (even IM, browser, secunia - everything that may use Flash component), go to Control Panel > Add / Remove programs and uninstall all Flash versions visible. You may want to restart your computer to get rid of all files. Then run Flash uninstaller - after its complete, you may click "details" to see if reboot is required to delete some locked files, if yes then please restart your computer. Now, there should be no Flash on your computer... except Flash installed by 3rd party programs (it will usually be outside Windows directory). If you still can't uninstall Flash you should try contacting Adobe maybe?

Firefox is my default browser. When I try to apply the solution to the vers 10.x (ActiveX Control), Adobe download opens in an IE window and then hangs. I reboot with no programs running except PSI and IE. Same thing. IE stops responding.
Does this fix matter, if I do not open IE browser?

It looks as if secunia psi downloads the correct version,10.0.32.18.,but if i rerun PSI scan it displays the old version,10.2.1.26 incorrectly,to be updated.
I've also downloaded "revo uninstaller" and it confirms that my pc has the latest version(10.0.32.18)~~Hope that helps!

You must manually remove the file Flash10b.ocx as you have received the file Flash10c.ocx during the upgrade process. This did the trick with me (after two frustrating hours behind the keyboard)

If Adobe says Flash 10.0.32.18 is most current, why does PSI say a higher version is available? http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/155/tn_15507.html

As previously suggested here, doing a Search of C: for both indexed and non-indexed locations for flash10b.ocx and totally deleting it (not just sending to recycle bin) fixes all issues for me. Vista x64 Business current.

I clicked on the OPEN FOLDERS icon for the insecure Flash.
In the Flash folder was a Flash10b.ocx and a 10c version.
I clicked on the Flash10b.ocx version and Hit delete.
A RETRY window popped up until I closed the browser and maybe PSI.
I hope I did not leave a step out because I had to back up and punt several times.

I was not a problem this time but Adobe will update a file in one program but not another such as AIR so you have to manually replace the updated file.

I think it may be easier to remove Flash and reinstall from scratch for Flash.
I hope Adobe get their act together on updates soon.

After initial troubles I got the intended result. I first installed the Mozilla/Opera/Safari update, and then I simply installed the IExplorer one. This time everything went without hitches or glitches.

Thanks joesoap
I bypassed PSI and went direct to adobe to download from there and it worked. Problem solved.
Wonder why the link from PSI is causing so much trouble

The answer is plastered all over the Forum.

To remove all versions of Flash from the C drive of your PC:


1. Download & use the flash Uninstaller from here:

#####Before actually running the uninstaller it is a good idea to close all browsers,PSI and any other programme U think may be using Flash #####

http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewContent.do?ext...

2. Reboot to clear out any left over ocx files.

3. Rescan using PSI - if there are any insecure Flash elements left what is the path to them? U should not proceed to stage 4 until all U clear any problems found.(The PSI overview page may look a little odd because it uses Flash for the pictorials)

Note: At this stage,if PSI finds any elements of Flash in the C:\i386 folder or on any drive other than C that is an OEM reinstallation partition (normally D drive) or a drive U use solely to backup your work U can safely create an ignore rule.


4. Reinstall the latest Internet Explorer Flash Player from here:

http://www.filehippo.com/download_flashplayer_ie/

4A.If U are also using Firefox, Opera and other Gecko-based browsers U need this link as well:

http://www.filehippo.com/download_flashplayer_fire...

5. Go to add/remove & double check Adobe have not installed the useless Adobe Download Manager - if U see an entry remove it.
