    Can anyone confirm if Google Chrome's sandbox can isolate this exploit when using the bundled Flash player? Does the --safe-plugins flag help?

    I never knew there were two different versions. What's the difference?

    Rilla927, the ActiveX version is for the Internet Explorer browser and the Plug-in version is for Firefox, Opera and other Gecko based browsers.

    The direct downloads links are and have been for quite awhile:

    Uninstaller:
    hxxp://download.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/current/uninstall_flash_player.exe

    Installer for Internet Explorer:
    hxxp://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/current/install_flash_player_ax.exe

    Installer for Firefox, Opera, Google Chrome:
    hxxp://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/install_flash_player.exe

    (just replace hxxp with the obvious one http ; that's all)

    If you use those links, you will not get the other stuff which you don't want.

    MD5 checksums of those files for THIS update:

    Uninstaller
    uninstall_flash_player.exe
    A61BE9AFF9884EBD68CDD288E049FCE9

    Installer for Internet Explorer
    install_flash_player_ax.exe
    C39575DEF97CBB679BD9D0367221B2C1

    Installer for Firefox, Opera, Google Chrome
    install_flash_player.exe
