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 18.104.22.168. The plugin for Mozilla browsers (flashplayer-plugin) has version 22.214.171.1246.
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.
Thanks for the quick update.
Please note that the slackpkg command should be:
"slackpkg update && slackpkg upgrade flash"
Adobe should consider renaming their Flash plugin to Tamagotchi plugin. :o)
