After last week’s updates by Adobe, addressing new vulnerabilities in their Flash Player plugins, today we have another bugfix release. That’s faster than I had anticipated. Luckily I was alerted by a dutch news site so I could quickly wrap the new Flash binaries into Slackware packages for your consumption.
The plugin for the Chromium browser (chromium-pepperflash-plugin) was stamped with version number 188.8.131.52 while the plugin for Mozilla browsers (flashplayer-plugin) was upped to version 184.108.40.2064 (both 64bit and 32bit).
As always, Slackware packages for these Flash plugins are available for download & install in the following locations:
- http://www.slackware.com/~alien/slackbuilds/ (master site)
- http://bear.alienbase.nl/mirrors/people/alien/slackbuilds/ (my fast mirror)
- http://alien.slackbook.org/slackbuilds/ (US)
- http://slackware.uk/people/alien/slackbuilds/ (UK)
Have fun with these. Better even, try to avoid sites that are still using Flash… HTML5 is the better alternative.
