[Snort-users] Adobe Flash outdated

It's probably a TP, and it refers to the installation of Flash that an IE browser is using. Auto-update doesn't always seem to work, and if the Flash installation is old enough, it isn't there.

In fact, I'd go so far as to say that Adobe's auto-update is broken. Try downloading and running Secunia PSI on a couple of those systems and see what it tells you.

Subject: [Snort-users] Adobe Flash outdated

I have adobe flash set to auto-update on all of my client machines, but I am still getting massive amounts of:


snort: "ET POLICY Outdated Windows Flash Version IE"


Is this telling me the adobe flash version running on the website they are visiting is out of date or is it a false positive?
