August ’15 security fixes for Adobe Flash
In their “tuesday is patch day” routine, Adobe released updated Flash player plugins which adddress many new vulnerabilities (as usual).
For your information: The updated Slackware package for chromium-pepperflash-plugin (to be used together with my chromium package) has version 188.8.131.52. The updated flashplayer-plugin has version 184.108.40.2068.
The Chromium plugin was extracted from the official Google Chrome 44.0.2403.155 RPM which was released yesterday. New packages for my own chromium package based on the sources of that same version are being compiled at the moment… it always takes half a day for the sources to become available for download.
My download locations for the Flash plugin packages are unchanged:
- http://www.slackware.com/~alien/slackbuilds/ (master site)
- http://taper.alienbase.nl/mirrors/people/alien/slackbuilds/ (my own US mirror)
- http://alien.slackbook.org/slackbuilds/ (US)
- http://slackware.org.uk/people/alien/slackbuilds/ (UK)
If you are using the slackpkg+ extension for slackpkg, then you just run “slackpkg update && slackpkg update flash”. Alternatively, you can subscribe to my repository RSS feed to stay informed of any updates.
