Hello.

 

I am on Macbook 10.6.8

 

I am unable to watch videos on YouTube as apparently I don't have Adobe flash player installed (I don't know why this has happened now as I have not had a problem viewing videos on youtube for the past few years).

 

So I have been to the Adobe flashplayer website and downloaded the most recent version and installed it. Once the installation process is complete it quite literally does nothing. The installation manager says the installation is complete and has been succesful, but I cannot find it on the computer and I still cannot watch videos.

 

I have tried to follow the troubleshooting tips on the adobe flashplayer site - but this has got me perplexed!

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks.

    Two bugs, one affecting Apple's Mac platform and another attacking Microsoft's Windows, exploit certain Flash player vulnerabilities to install malware onto users' systems, reports ArsTechnica. While users of other operating systems like Linux have yet to report attacks, Adobe's advisory notes the exploit affects all platforms.

     

    Designated as CVE-2013-0634, the first vulnerability targets the Safari and Firefox Web browsers running on OS X, and is also being used as a trojan to deploy Microsoft Word documents containing malware. For Mac users, the flaw affects Adobe Flash Player version 11.5.502.146 or earlier.

     

    On March 1 Apple again blocked Flash Player for Lion and Mountain Lion:

    The Adobe Flash patch can be found on Adobe’s website, and users can visit this page to check if their software is the most curent version.

     

    You should uninstall any previous version first, and repair permissions after installing the new version.

     

    If you still get a ‘plug-ins blocked’ message:
