April ’16 security fixes for Adobe Flash

adobe_flash_8s600x600_2Yesterday Adobe issued a new Flash player  security update .The update addresses a zero-day vulnerability which is actively exploited – installing crypto ransomware on Windows computers. No idea about the relevance of that for the Linux platform but I created packages anyway.

There’s a new Linux Flash Player plugin as well as a Chromium PepperFlash addon. The new plugin for the Chromium browser (chromium-pepperflash-plugin) has the version number 21.0.0.213. The plugin for Mozilla browsers (flashplayer-plugin) has version 11.2.202.616.

My download locations for the Flash plugin packages are as always:

If you are using the slackpkg+ extension for slackpkg, then you just run “slackpkg update && slackpkg upgrade flash”. Alternatively, you can subscribe to my repository RSS feed to stay informed of any updates.

Thanks for the quick update.
Please note that the slackpkg command should be:
"slackpkg update && slackpkg upgrade flash"

Adobe should consider renaming their Flash plugin to Tamagotchi plugin. :o)
