I don't think I even have a Shockwave plugin, unless it came with the browser. But if I do, I want to remove it and/or check the version number. IDS detected a CVE-2010-3655 attack aimed at me.



Safari-->Help-->Installed Plugins


Browser plug-ins are generally installed in either:

  • /Library/Internet Plug-Ins
  • ~/Library/Internet Plug-Ins

and can just be deleted from there. OS X itself will also sometimes move incompatible plug-ins to a 'Disabled Plug-Ins' sub-folder, and you can do that too if you're not ready to completely discard them. (Though in that case, you might as well use Safari's Security Preferences to temporarily disable them.)
