Is Logitech Harmony remote secure?

On April 8th, Adobe announced that Adobe Flash Player 22.214.171.124 and earlier, and 126.96.36.199 and earlier have security vulnerabilities. They strongly recommend that you users upgrade to the newest version 188.8.131.52.
Thanks to Secunia PSI application (read my previous post), I have the latest patched. However, I realized that latest Logitech Harmony Remote software uses Macromedia Flash Player 184.108.40.206. If you have this software, you can find it in Program Files\Logitech\Logitech Harmony Remote Software 7\gre\plugins\NPSWF32.dll.
It’s not that bad because you don’t browse the web with their application but I still don’t feel very comfortable by having insecure DLL on my PC.
First time I heard about (actually read about) Logitech Harmony remote control it was on Scott Hanselman blog about three years ago. However, only few months ago I finally decided to spend some money for my Harmony 880 remote. I love it and don’t regret a bit.
