Re: KB923789 Security Update for Flash Player Won't Install

From what I have read it seems this update is for users of IE? I use
firefox and am also getting the "failed" result. Should I just not
bother since I use firefox? Thnx.

Microsoft Security Bulletin MS06-069
Vulnerabilities in Macromedia Flash Player from Adobe Could Allow Remote
Code Execution (923789)
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sec.../ms06-069.mspx

> Published: November 14, 2006


That's a *really* old update.
Instead, go here and see what Version is installed in Firefox:
http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/welcome/
IF Shockwave is installed, the system will be prompted to update to the
latest Version if it's an earlier release.
The page will also show which Version of Flash Player is installed in
Firefox but it won't automatically prompt to update older, vulnerable
versions.

As long as IE is *never* used to view flash content, then the system
won't be exploited by the vulnerability described in MS06-069.

Frankly speaking, you can ignore KB923789 and run the FP uninstaller to
remove any chance of exploitation using IE

NOTE: This will remove Adobe Flash Player from all browsers on the system

Then download and install the standalone FP installer for Firefox:

*** Beware of any toolbars that will try to sneak onto the system at the
beginning of the installation process ***
