The Microsoft updates are upon us, and they're an impressively (or depressingly) large package, as predicted.
I haven't yet checked for the Adobe Reader updates, but I see that there is yet another update available for Flash. The current version for all browsers and platforms is now 10.3.181.26
Edit - Oh, and there's a new version of Chrome out today - version is now 12.0.742.100
Edit - And updates for a whole range of add-ons in Firefox 4, including NoScript. It's a busy day today.
Happy Patch Tuesday/Wednesday everyone.

The early indications from Adobe were that there would be updates only for Acrobat and Reader. In fact, as Newjack has pointed out, there is yet another Critical Severity update for Flash - and that's not all. A check on the Adobe site shows updates out today for other Adobe products, including Shockwave and ColdFusion. ALL of these are rated Important or Critical, so update now.
"Java Patch Plugs 17 Security Holes"
I posted that one on June 8th.
This is why we need a tool like Secunia's built in to McAfee.
And on the subject of Secunia I posted a comment in Product Ideas which I will reproduce here :
Two days ago on the BBC World Service News I heard an interview with Kevin Mitnick (hacker-turned-security consultant and media guru) about the latest corporate victim of hacking in which he recommended, to millions of listeners, that they should install Secunia PSI on their PCs to help guard against malware attacks. That should raise the awareness level, at least among his listeners. I think there is a latent demand for this feature. It would at least be a selling point for the Marketing department.
