Adobe has released version of Flash Player to avoid letting down those users who for certain reasons can't update to the current version 10. This includes the users of Microsoft Windows 98, Windows ME, Mac OS X 10.1 to 10.3 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 4. According to Adobe, version 10 does not work on these systems. Adobe had initially planned to discontinue its support of the series 9 versions.

Version closes the security holes that appeared in version in mid October and have already been closed in version 08-11-06 The update also fixes six other vulnerabilities, including cross-site scripting holes, a hole that allows DNS rebinding attacks and some processing flaws in connection with Java archives.
