Adobe posted a new version of Flash on Thursday that addresses a critical security issue, (CVE-2010-0186) which "could subvert the domain sandbox and make unauthorized cross-domain requests." The new version, 10.0.45.2 replaces version 10.0.42.34.

Because there is no automatic update mechanism supplied by Adobe for stand alone Flash, users must become aware of these alerts and manually apply the update.

On the linked page:

“You have version 10,0,45,2 installed”
