That was quick. Both files have been updated now, and they install the correct version.
When I download the two msi files they are still on version 126.96.36.199 :-(
Also when I download them from http://download.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/licensing/win/install_flash_player_ 17_plugin.msi and http://download.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/licensing/win/install_flash_player_ 17_active_x.msi I get the old version.
Can you please tell us your geographical location where you are downloading these file ?
Also can you please give it a try after clearing your browser cache ?
I download the files from several locations in the Netherlands and on several computers and with different browsers.
I am having exactly the same issue, but with the PLUGIN msi and exe installers. I run them ion a clean device and the version consistently shows as being 188.8.131.52 and not as expected 184.108.40.206. This is the same for PLUGIN version for the debugger product that our enterprise also uses.
I am using the [ link removed - sharing FP distribution deep links is prohibited by the EULA ] as the download location but have also tried the URL that Ramon posted above and am seeing the same. Location is EMEA, platform is Windows 7, IE8 / IE11 / Firefox browsers.
Any ideas folks?
I am in the UK. I have repeatedly attempted to download from Adobe Flash Player Distribution | Adobe but find that although the page states that Flash Player versions 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.1689 are available, I must wait for the download to be in the destination folder before I am able to discover that they are in fact previous versions 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.1991.
Does it matter if I am effectively thwarted by Adobe in my efforts to update its vulnerable software? Adobe seems unable to do what most are able to, i.e. provide timely access to security updates. I would be glad to be contradicted by an authoritative statement that Adobe is in fact utterly totally dedicated to the web safety of its product users. However, this lack of availability of timely security updates is a problem which has been going on for many many months so I am grateful to such as MalwareBytes for its Anti-Exploit security product for the protection it provides me against exploits of vulnerable non-updated versions of Flash Player.
I should have said that I use .exe installers for Flash Player browser plugins.
My previous post was removed? I succeeded in downloading the two msi files from the flash player distribution page (90 minutes ago)
@RamonKroese I think it was removed as per the link in my post "link removed - sharing FP distribution deep links is prohibited by the EULA"
Anyway I have subsequently managed to get a working plugin version 188.8.131.52 to install successfully for our Firefox browser, but am still encountering an issue with the plugin debugger version. Assume this will rectify itself in the next hour or so. I do wonder if it is something to do with the replication service, as appears if you try and download too quickly and dependant on your location you sometimes get the previous version rather than the version that the site is detailing? just a thought!
Good luck all!
We are looking into this. There are a few other threads on this same issue. Please see:
I'll be posting updates on the other threads. Please follow one of those two threads.
Thank you. Flash Player .exe installer version 184.108.40.206 is now on my system and is operational.
