    Talking Snow Leopard ships with vulnerable Flash Player

    Apple’s new operating system comes with an outdated version of Flash Player that exposes Mac users to hacker attacks.

    The initial release of Mac OS X 1..6 (Snow Leopard) includes Flash Player 10.0.23.1, which is very much out of date. The fully patched version of Flash Player for Mac is version 10.0.32.18.

    Even worse, Intego reports that the vulnerable version of Flash is included even if the Mac user was fully patched before upgrading the operating system.



    The current version of Flash Player for Mac is 10.0.32.18, but if you go to the Flash Player version test page after installing Snow Leopard, you’ll find that you have version 10.0.23.1, even if you were up-to-date before the upgrade. It seems that Apple is shipping an outdated, even dangerous version of Flash Player.

    Perhaps you can't get a leopard to chnage its spots, and that some apples wearing macs are rotten at their core
