On the Adobe website you can check which flash version is installed on your currently opened browser and the actual flash versions. Don’t forget: if you have more browsers in use, you have to update flash in every browser seperatly.
If you automatically allow updates, the flash player patch will be installed automatically. You can also download the update when you click on this link.
