In a warm up to patch Tuesday, it looks like we have a new version for Adobe Flash Player, Shockwave Player and PDF Reader. Given that some of the exploits against the vulnerabilities patched are public, you may want to expedite patching and review your Flash Player and browser configuration.

the latest (patched) versions are (thanks Dave!):

- Flash Player 18.0.0.209
- Flash Player EST 13.0.0.305
- Reader 10.1.15
- Reader 11.0.12
- Shockwave Player 12.1.9.159

Bulletins:

You can get the latest version here: https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ 

Also note that many browsers now allow you to disable Flash by default. You can re-enable it for sites that require Flash. Here is a nice page that will explain how to have your browser ask for permission before running plugins:
