I have Firefox 3.6.10. When I checked for plug-ins updates, it opened the "plug-in check" page and showed the Shockwave Flash 10.1 r82 as "vulnerable", explaining a potential security vulnerability and suggesting to update to latest version if existent, or if not,disable the plugin.

The Adobe security advisory suggests to upgrade to the newest version Adobe Flash Player
When I click on it, it says Adobe Flash Player  10.1   only. It also says: "You may have to temporarily disable your antivirus software". Is this safe?   Also: how do I know that the 10 . 1 version is the same as the version?

The Adobe Flash Player page refers to 10.1, but the full version details for the latest release is 10.1 r85 which is a security update. You can get it from the above link, or use the manual installers available from

You should not have to disable the Anti-virus software in order to install Flash, only do that if is is interfering with the installation.
