Instead of temporarily disabling flash (because of security issues) every time you launch a browser, you’d better off updating Adobe flash player to its latest version. A new flash player update has been rolled out by Adobe supporting all the operating systems — including Mac, Linux, Windows — and, more importantly, fixing some serious security vulnerabilities.
Adobe Flash 11.4 version has been patched to get rid of six security problems, out of which five of them were marked “critical.” It is highly recommended for Mac users running Mac OS X Mountain Lion to update to this new flash plugin.
Crucial issues fixed in this new flash player:
- Problems with memory corruption

- Cross-domain leak
