Subject: RE: Tech: Problem with Adobe Flash player 11
If you use a Mac - beware Flash updates. There was a virus doing the rounds 6 months ago (sorry I have to repeat it) ON MACS. Called FlashBack or some such.

Is this vaguely appropriate?

The other problem with Macs (apart from the conceit that they don't get viruses) is the Java update that took a very long time for Apple to admit and issue - for security reasons. If they believe they are invulnerable then security updates are off the radar.

Hope you have sorted the problem.
