Apple Released Snow Leopard Update, which fixed Adobe Flash Issue

On Thursday 09/10/09 released a new update for Mac OS X Snow Leopard. Recently users who updated to Snow Leopard discovered that this new update downgraded them to an older version of Adobe Systems’ Flash Player.
It seems that this issue is minor and only requires few clicks to upgrade again, however the older version of Flash Player plug-in is less secure and does not protect protect users against the latest threats.

Moreover, Sophos security expert Graham Cluley said Wednesday:
"Mac users who have been diligent enough to keep their security up-to-date do not deserve to be silently downgraded, we know that hackers keep finding security holes in Adobe's code--and that's deeply concerning because it is so widely used by many internet users, whether on Mac or PC."
Apple promptly responded to this by fixing the problem and addressing this issue with Snow Leopard 10.6.1 keeping the most stable version of Adobe Player.
