Flash vulnerability; upgrade to 10.1 RC in Ubuntu

Adobe has announced a poten­tial secu­ri­ty risk in ver­sions of Flash ear­li­er than 10.0.45.2. This includes the ver­sions in Lucid’s default repos­i­to­ries.

If you’re feel­ing para­noid or would just like to try the lat­est Flash 10.1 release can­di­date, you can down­load it from Adobe, and fol­low the install instruc­tions from Web Upd8.

Update: The final 10.1 release from Adobe has hit the main Ubun­tu repos­i­to­ries. A soft­ware update should do it.
