adobe has released a security patch for flash http://www.adobe.com/support/security/advisories/apsa10-05.html and http://www.adobe.com/support/security/bulletins/apsb10-26.html and updated versions are now Adobe Flash Player

"Adobe recommends users of Adobe Flash Player and earlier versions for Windows, Macintosh, Linux, and Solaris update to Adobe Flash Player"

So we need to update the versions in the plugin check

Updates applied on stage, and I think it's good. I've tested it with 10.1r85 and 10.1 r102, and the check performs as expected.

Could QA have a look at stage and let me know if we're good? I apologize if I am missing steps, this is my first update.

I've compared stage to prod and updated prod.

NOT working correctly on Safari 5.0.2. Tested on two systems:

* iMac9,1 (Intel), Mac OS X v10.6.5
* PowerMac3,4 (G4), Mac OS X v10.5.8 (9L31a) with latest security update

The page says "Potentially vulnerable plugins" and lists "Shockwave Flash 10.1 r102" as an "Outdated Version" with a yellow/orange Update button, which links to Adobe's site which offers Adobe Flash Player version (same version as installed).  http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/ confirms that "You have version 10,1,102,64 installed".

Please fix this.

Additional information:

On the same systems, Firefox 3.6.12 correctly shows that is
installed and is "Up to Date".

Also, I'm using the en-US page if that makes any difference:

Thanks for your help, can you point these browser/OS combos at 

Click Flash in the list and then note the Version Chain detected for each browser/OS combo?

Corrected on stage. Flash is detected as with Safari. Safari-specific entry added on stage with that version, ready for QA.

@ozten - Version chain shows up as 10,1,102,0 in Safari. (Interesting... shows up as 10,1,102,64 in Firefox.)

@kev - Stage version works great for me on both test systems.

@kev - I also tested Safari 5.0.2 on Windows XP.

https://www.mozilla.com/en-US/plugincheck/ - same bug as on the Macs
http://www-trunk.stage.mozilla.com/en-US/plugincheck/ - works great on XP

Note: I have NOT tested http://www-trunk.stage.mozilla.com/en-US/plugincheck/ with an older version of Flash.  I've only tested it with the current version on the two Macs and the one Windows XP system.

Older versions show up as vulnerable. 

Pushing to prod given comment #10.

Firefox 4.0b7 cannot find Flash on Linux. I have Flash 10.1.85 installed, and the extension manager in Fx4.0b7 tells me there is no new version available.

Leaving this as fixed, and will focus on 615817. Linux version appears to be, which is different than the other versions (hooray). Will investigate and update 615817.
