Anyone know if version 10.3.183.19 is vulnerable? the CVE is not clear as it states "Adobe Flash Player before 10.3.183.19 and 11.x before 11.2.202.235 on Windows" and Adobe does not even mention 10.x

Dave,

According to the security bulletin, it states "For users who cannot update to Flash Player 11.2.202.235, Adobe has developed a patched version of Flash Player 10.x, Flash Player 10.3.183.19, which can be downloaded here." Here is helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/…
