A little vunerable 'flash from the past' ala MS-XP-SP3

It appears that XP service pack 3 installs an older vulnerable version of the flash player.
Causing those systems to be vulnerable to these vulnerabilities.

Microsoft has documented it here:
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/Bulletin/MS06-069.mspx

"Why was this Bulletin revised on May 13, 2008?
This bulletin was revised to add Windows XP Service Pack 3 as affected software.
This is a detection update only. There were no changes to the binaries, since
the same update for Windows XP Service Pack 2 and Windows XP Professional x64
Edition applies to Windows XP Service Pack 3. Customers with Windows XP Service
Pack 2 and Windows XP Professional x64 Edition who have already installed the security
update will not need to reinstall the update. Customers with Windows XP Service Pack 3
should apply the update immediately."
