flashplugin
« on: July 11, 2015, 08:10:20 pm »

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in Adobe Flash Player, the worst of which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code.
flashplugin 11.2.202.481 is in the repos to address this issue

I just opened gslapt and clicked update then type flash in the search box. I uninstalled the existing prior to installing 481 but not sure it is required

Thanks wigums

firefox gives you the option to allow flashplayer on a per site basis. its disabled by default but it still plays/works.
flashplayer has been updated to 11.2.202.491 and is now in the untested repo
