Due to a holiday stay in Brittany (France) last week, the monthly updates for Adobe’s Flash player plugins took a little longer to reach my Slackware repository. Read the Flash player security update of July 12th if you want to know more about all the CVE entries the update is addressing.
Good news by the way: it is no longer required to extract the PepperFlash library from a Google Chrome RPM. Adobe hosts the PPAPI plugins on their own web server now. This has another (positive) consequence: there is a 32bit pepperflash plugin again!
The updated plugin for the Chromium browser (chromium-pepperflash-plugin) has the version number 22.214.171.124 while the plugin for Mozilla browsers (flashplayer-plugin) is now at version 126.96.36.1992.
Slackware packages for these Flash plugins are available for download & install in the following locations:
- http://www.slackware.com/~alien/slackbuilds/ (master site)
- http://bear.alienbase.nl/mirrors/people/alien/slackbuilds/ (my 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.
Thank you Eric! I hope you enjoyed your holiday.
