Check for update says Adobe Flash needs updating, but it's current
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:35.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/35.0 Build ID: 20150122214805 Steps to reproduce: I updated to FF 35.0.1/restarted 3 times. Did a plugin check for updates, and says I need to upgrade Flash/vulnerable- Downloaded Adobe/exit FF/installed. -open/closed 3 times, plugin check says I'm still out of date, but AF web Version check says I have the latest 18.104.22.1687 installed!? Actual results: Updated Flash, but says I still need to update (NOT!). Expected results: FF Plugin check should say I'm up to date! Win 7 Pro, ESET Smart Security v8 (only active AV).
22.214.171.1246 is the most recent version . https://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/distribution3.html 126.96.36.1997 is an old version but some Adobe websites aren't updated and show this as most recent version.

Scott, Your report is helpful. The situation with Adobe Flash and the recent 0day vulnerabilities has meant that there have been rapid changes: See: "Adobe Product Security Incident Response Team (PSIRT) Blog" http://blogs.adobe.com/psirt/ 3 recent Adobe Security Bulletins: http://helpx.adobe.com/security/products/flash-player/apsa15-01.html http://helpx.adobe.com/security/products/flash-player/apsb15-02.html http://helpx.adobe.com/security/products/flash-player/apsb15-02.html Mozilla is going to Blocklist the vulnerable versions of Flash. See bug 1124654 "Blocklist request for flash 0days affecting version 188.8.131.527, 184.108.40.2062, and 220.127.116.118". This bug has most of the detail about timing. As you noted the Plugincheck Website https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/plugincheck/ does not always give accurate results. In your case, testing / checking Flash 18.104.22.1687, using Firefox 35.0.1, about 2015-01-26 13:34:18 PST actually gave the correct result: Flash 22.214.171.1247 was "vulnerable". Schalk Neethling [:espressive] on 2015-01-25 at 06:20:49 PST in bug 1124654 comment # 14 had updated the Plugincheck Database: > Ok, I have updated the plugins database as follows: > > Latest Win and Mac: 126.96.36.1996 > Latest Win and Mac ESR: 188.8.131.524 So, you should have seen (and you did see) Flash 184.108.40.2067 reported as "vulnerable". You may have seen that even Adobe's website http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/ was not quite up to date in the last few days (e.g. in bug 1124654 comment # 10 on 2015-01-24 at 04:30:56 PST). It was OK when I checked it earlier today. So, in your case Scot, I recommend that you check Adobe's website http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/ and compare it to what you see when you type "about:plugins" (without quote) in the Firefox Address bar. As Matthias Versen [:Matti] said in comment # 1: > 220.127.116.116 is the most recent version You might need to update Flash again. I have seen about 4 hours ago, using Fx 34, and testing Plugincheck with Flash 18.104.22.1687 a report of "Up to Date" in error. I have also seen the 'correct result', Flash 22.214.171.1247 reported as "vulnerable" (on Fx 35.0.1) and Flash 126.96.36.1996 reported as "Up to Date" (on Fx 35.0.1). I will add your report as well as my tests to bug 1084537 "Flash sometimes displayed as up to date whilst vulnerable, on Windows 7". DJ-Leith
