When it comes to computers and the internet, security is always of some concern. As it should be. With identity theft seeming to be running rampant, it is smart to be aware of possible security issues and address them before you become a victim. And in my opinion, I think it is best to err on the side of caution and over protect because the extra effort you take now will keep you safe in the long run.
Adobe Flash Player is something that is used all over the Internet. If you are a web junkie like myself, you probably visit at least a dozen sites a day that are using Flash. Did you know that flash cookies, or local shared objects, are stored on your computer by Flash? These are often used to store user preferences but there are privacy concerns surrounding them. Once again Adobe lets you manage your settings by giving you the ability to disable this.
Computer and internet security issues are real so its important that you take measures to protect yourself and your information. As someone who uses quite a few Adobe products, I am glad to know that there are features already there to help protect me.
