ok, I will check.. I didn't mean to seem impatient, its just its happened before in the past loi ;p
yup files are updated
No worries, thanks for letting us know.
The binaries themselves are pushed out through a globally distributed content distribution network. Propagation throughout the network takes a while, and we *do* see instances where a random node will fail to update. It's frequently enough for us to just force update the network a second time a few hours after the initial push, but not always.
The inner workings of the CDN are generally transparent to us (we have to escalate to specialists at the vendor who have node-level visibility), so reports from the field -- particularly where they include your geographical location and/or network IP are always very useful in helping the network engineers locate affected nodes, in the event that we do run into issues where we can't resolve it from our end.
I think you're conflating the purposes of these things. The security bulletin exists to let you know that we've identified and corrected a defect that has security implications. (We don't differentiate between theoretically and actually exploitable, either.)
Because we invest heavily in proactive security work, it's pretty common for the latest bulletin to point to the latest Flash Player, but technically, that's not it's purpose. It points to the last version of Flash Player that has a security fix that you should take.
In this instance, we did release a new build outside the regular release cycle, which fixed a functional bug. Since there's not a security implication, there's no security bulletin. We've released again since then, but in this instance, if you're on 184.108.40.206 or higher, you're good from a security perspective.
If you're looking for just a list of what the current available versions are, this is probably a better source:
If you're specifically worried about events that require you to take action (e.g. you're a network administrator responsible for keeping your client workstations patched), then you'll definitely want to subscribe to the security notification service and keep and/or keep an eye on the latest Flash Player bulletin. As long as you're running a specified or higher version than what's listed in the most recent advisory, you should be in good shape.
Hope that makes sense.
Actually, that's a little ambiguous:
In this instance, we did release a new build outside the regular release cycle, which fixed a functional bug (220.127.116.11). Since there's not a security issue addressed by 18.104.22.168, there's no new security bulletin mentioning it. At that point in time, , if you were on 22.214.171.124 or higher, you were good from a security perspective.
We've released again since then on the regular monthly cadence (126.96.36.199), which is the current build.
Things are slightly confusing at the moment, in that Flash Player, AIR for desktop, and AIR SDK, are on three different builds.
