Adobe Flash Player updates available for OS X on December 12, 2014

Adobe Flash Player updates address a recently identified Adobe Flash Player web plug-in vulnerability.

If you're using an out-of-date version of the Adobe Flash Player plug-in, you may see the message “Blocked plug-in,” “Flash Security Alert,” or “Flash out-of-date” when attempting to view Flash content in Safari.

 Flash out of date indicator

Clicking the indicator displays a message that Adobe Flash Player is out-of-date:

Out of date message

To continue viewing Flash content, update to a later version of Adobe Flash Player:

  1. Click the Download Flash button. Safari opens the Adobe Flash Player page on the Adobe website.
  2. Follow the instructions on the Adobe website to download and install the latest version of the plug-in.

If you need to use an older version of Flash Player, you can use Internet plug-in management in Safari to run the plug-in in unsafe mode for websites that you trust.

Contact Adobe if you need help downloading, installing, or using Adobe Flash Player.
