Critical Adobe Shockwave Update v12.2.1.171


I personally don't see the point in bothering to have the Adobe Shockwave Internet plug-in installed at this point in time. I recommend UNinstalling it and leaving it that way. Adobe is constantly behind in keeping it's instance of Adobe Flash up-to-date, making Shockwave dangerous.

But if you have to have the Shockwave plug-in, here you go. A new critical update, released 'out-of-band', meaning that this it is important to install it NOW, if you're going to bother.

Here is Adobe's Security Bulletin for Shockwave v12.2.1.171:
