Default Security risk with Flash

Any site developer using Flash applets may need to urgently review their code. I have not used Flash for a few years so may be able to have a "peaceful" Christmas....

Serious Flash vulns menace tens of thousands websites | The Register

A security update Adobe released this week for its Flash player doesn't fix the vulnerabilities, but how many users would apply the latest updates, anyway? Updates to authoring software will also be required.

Be aware when browsing. I have Flashblock running on FireFox, and rarely view Flash movies.
