New Flash player – security fix
Adobe released security updates of their Flash Player for all platforms. The latest Adobe security bulletin shows 188.8.131.526 as the new version for native Linux and 184.108.40.206 for the Chrome PepperFlash. Package locations:
- http://www.slackware.com/~alien/slackbuilds/flashplayer-plugin/ for the native Linux browser plugin
- http://www.slackware.com/~alien/slackbuilds/chromium-pepperflash-plugin/ for the Chrome Pepperflash plugin which you can use with my Chromium browser package (note that I updated this package a few days ago – Chrome was faster with providing the fixed plugin than Adobe itself)
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.
