Safari 5.1.7 update disables older Flash Players citing security reasonsHeads up Safari users, we certainly hope that the majority of you guys have remained up to date, but in case you’re the type of person who frequently neglects to update their software or if you know someone who’s like that, you should probably take note that in the latest update of Safari (to version 5.1.7), it seems that Apple has disabled older versions of Flash Player. However given that Adobe’s Flash Player has built-in auto-updates since version 10.3 last year, safe to say that whoever hasn’t updated their Flash Player in over a year will be the only ones affected. In any case if you suddenly find Flash Player not working after you’ve updated your Safari browser, perhaps updating to the latest version of it should do the trick. More details can be found at Apple’s website.
