I am an Ubuntu newbie and I installed Ubuntu Desktop 12.04, 64 bit. As I noticed the Firefox is the actual version, but the Adobe Flashplayer was the 11.2 version which has, I guess, some security problems?
I was connected to the Internet for several days before I noticed that the Flashplayer is 11.2.
My question is - is there any chance of my PC being infected now? Can BIOS be infected, or if I format the HD and install Ubuntu again everything will be fine?
