June ’16 security fixes for Adobe Flash

Earlier this week, there was already some talk about a zero-day exploit in Flash for which Adobe would be releasing a fix. And indeed they issued a Flash player  security update yesterday. The updated plugin for the Chromium browser (chromium-pepperflash-plugin) has the version number 22.0.0.192 while the plugin for Mozilla browsers (flashplayer-plugin) moves up a tiny bit; to version 11.2.202.626.

ISO images for Slackware Live Edition based on the liveslak 1.1.0 scripts and using Slackware-current dated “Wed Jun 15 06:13:17 UTC 2016” are available as of now (I missed the 3rd update Pat made to slackware-current today but I think that’s acceptible).

You will certainly have noticed that I am still using the words “current” […]

Updated ISOs for Slackware Live Edition

I am in the process of uploading new ISO images for Slackware Live Edition based on the liveslak 1.0.1 scripts and using Slackware-current dated “Fri May 27 23:08:17 UTC 2016”. This version of Slackware-current has several significant changes and fixes, compared to the snapshot I used for the liveslak-1.0.0 based ISO images. I did not […]
