April ’16 security fixes for Adobe Flash
Yesterday Adobe issued a new Flash player security update .The update addresses a zero-day vulnerability which is actively exploited – installing crypto ransomware on Windows computers. No idea about the relevance of that for the Linux platform but I created packages anyway.
There’s a new Linux Flash Player plugin as well as a Chromium PepperFlash addon. The new plugin for the Chromium browser (chromium-pepperflash-plugin) has the version number 22.214.171.124. The plugin for Mozilla browsers (flashplayer-plugin) has version 126.96.36.1996.
My download locations for the Flash plugin packages are as always:
- http://www.slackware.com/~alien/slackbuilds/ (master site)
- http://bear.alienbase.nl/mirrors/people/alien/slackbuilds/ (my new fast mirror)
- http://alien.slackbook.org/slackbuilds/ (US)
- http://slackware.uk/people/alien/slackbuilds/ (UK)
If you are using the slackpkg+ extension for slackpkg, then you just run “slackpkg update && slackpkg upgrade flash”. Alternatively, you can subscribe to my repository RSS feed to stay informed of any updates.
