Your information is quite old and obsolete.  Adobe has released 2
"updated" 64-bit plugins in September (9/14 and 9/27, but no further
updates in October).  I'm not sure how many of the vulnerabilities have
been fixed, but many of the sites which used to work no longer have
mouse/keyboard support, particularly some flash game sites.

These releases are labeled as "pre-releases", but I have no idea when
any final releases may come (probably not until the 64-bit plugin does
everything the 32-bit plugin currently does).
