Updating Adobe Flash Player [Solved]

Hi

So I learned there's a 0day vulnerability in Adobe Flash and that I need to update Flash from version 11,2,202,440 to version 11,2,202,442.

On the installion page of Adobe Flash Player there's a drop-down menu where one should choose which package to download..I admit that I have no idea. I use the Synaptic Package Manager when I need to install something..

I THINK the tar.gz is the right one but I don't know how to install it... sad

Heya boss,

In the terminal:

sudo update-flashplugin-nonfree --install --verbose

Does that fix you up?

Yeah if it's a zero day vulnerability, debian security should pick it up and get it fixed pretty quick.

@837183

The forum search tool is the icon at the top right of the page. There have been several threads recently, including Updating "Vulnerable plug-in" Adobe Flash [Solved]. This has the fix that @schwim gave you, along with some other bits and pieces.

I find I have to restart the browser after the update.
