WHAT'S THE PROBLEM?

You may not be aware you’re using Adobe Flash Player and other Adobe products but it is freely available on most web browsers (such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Google Chrome and Safari). And out dated programs may allow an attacker to take control of your computer.

 

HOW DO I PROTECT MY COMPUTER?

  1. If you are supported by ITFS or have different IT support, no action on your part is required.
  2. If you do not have IT support or they do not support your computer, on how to obtain the latest updates for your specific software refer to Adobe Flash Player Security Bulletin APSB14-20 at http://helpx.adobe.com/security/products/reader/apsb14-20.html.
