    This is separate from the IE zero-day. Update your Flash.

    I'm a member on wilderssecurity but there's too many on that forum with oversized egos.

    Discussions on security are very similar to our "intel vs amd" and "nvidia vs amd" threads...

    I probably visit krebs once a year....and I'm not really a fan of sites that use web based scanners. You never know exactly what the scanner is really doing.

    Personally, I've had more issues with Flash than any other software & I've stopped using it.
    Really wish more websites & companies would stop using it.

    Ah so that's what it was for. I have flash on an ask to activate basis and now that youtube's HTML5 support is very good, I have little use for flash.
