Steps to reproduce:

I was checking my plugins, and found that my Shockwave for Director 12.2.0.16
was blocked. In the notice is an "Update Now" link.


Actual results:

The link did not help me to update the plugin. Instead, it sent me to

I will have to have a look at the URL people are pointed to here but, when something is on the blocklist, that is the correct page to be sent. Can you copy and paste the link the button is sending you to?

If it is different from the one in your comment. Thanks!
