Remember yesterday when we told you about a recently discovered serious security flaw in Adobe Flash? Adobe is back in the news today with the release of a staggering 69 security updates. These updates apply to Flash, Acrobat and Reader.

As far as we can tell, the updates don't include a fix to that problem we talked about yesterday. However you'll still want to install them anyway because each one fixes a serious problem that leaves your computer vulnerable to malicious websites and files.

To update a standalone installation of Flash, click here. The Chrome, Internet Explorer 11 and Edge browsers will update it automatically when you restart the browser. Of course, even updated, you should seriously consider disabling Flash or uninstalling it completely. You might find you don't need it as much as you thought.

Click here to update Adobe Reader. If you have a recent version, it should also notify you that updates are available when you open it. The same goes for the full version of Acrobat.

Adobe isn't the only company pushing out updates this week. Click here to make sure you have the latest Windows, Internet Explorer and Office updates.
