Updates for Chromium and Flash
Adobe did their monthly security dance and as a result, Google also updated their Chrome browser with the new PepperFlash Plugin. That Chrome release meant that I could compile a new Chromium from the updated sources.
Chromium and Pepper Flash:
- [$2000] High CVE-2014-3165: Use-after-free in web sockets. Credit to Collin Payne.
-  High CVE-2014-3166: Information disclosure in SPDY. Credit to Antoine Delignat-Lavaud.
-  CVE-2014-3167: Various fixes from internal audits, fuzzing and other initiatives.
Note that I also updated the package for chromium-pepperflash-plugin to version 188.8.131.52- it contains the newest library, taken from the official Google Chrome binaries and is a recommended companion for the new Chromium package.
The Flash updates are released for all platforms, one of them is the “legacy” Linux NPAPI plugin for Mozilla-compatible browsers. See Adobe’s monthly security bulletin for all the version numbers and vulnerabilities. The Linux flashplayer-plugin went up to 184.108.40.2060.
