New Flash player – security fix

Adobe released security updates of their Flash Player for all platforms. The latest Adobe security bulletin shows 11.2.202.356 as the new version for native Linux and 13.0.0.206 for the Chrome PepperFlash. Package locations:

Perfom the update today if you are using Flash! And if you are using Windows (I know some of you do) – mind the advice of US and UK governments to stop using MS Internet Explorer since it contains an unpatched zero-day vulnerability which uses a Flash vulnerability in turn to wreck havoc on your Windows computer.

As usual, thanks for the update and the heads-up.

Funnily, the ad on the left side of this blog says “Download FREE IE test VMs for OSX, Windows and Linux. modern.ie” :) :)

Note that if you are using the pipelight plugin in your web browser (to use MS Wndows browser plugins in Linux) you need to update the version of Flash that is being used by pipelight as well !

As root, run:
# pipelight-plugin –update

This will download and install the latest version of the “dependency-installer” script. Next time when your browser loads the pipelight plugin and you have enabled pipelight’s Flash support, this will trigger an automatic update of Windows Flash player to the latest version (13.0.0.206 at this moment).
