My thoughts on Slackware, life and everything

June ’16 security fixes for Adobe Flash

adobe_flash_8s600x600_2Earlier this week, there was already some talk about a zero-day exploit in Flash for which Adobe would be releasing a fix. And indeed they issued a Flash player  security update yesterday.

The updated plugin for the Chromium browser (chromium-pepperflash-plugin) has the version number while the plugin for Mozilla browsers (flashplayer-plugin) moves up a tiny bit; to version

Slackware packages for these Flash plugins are available for download & install in the following locations:

Note that the Chromium plugin comes as a 64bit package only. Google has ceased providing 32bit versions of their Chrome browser from which I take the plugin library. I do offer a 32bit Chromium package of course; it’s just lacking the proprietary 32bit plugins now (pepperflash & widevine).

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.
