Flash Player PETs

April 03, 2012 — BarryK
Thanks to Terryphi who created some PETs:

I have uploaded Terryphi's PETs plus one other version here (5.1MB, 6.3MB, 6.4MB):

Note, we also have these older versions. Interesting how much smaller they are (2.9MB, 3.9MB):


Secure Flash versions
Username: Terryphi
According to Adobe there is a critical vulnerability in version and earlier versions. Therefore, I do not think version should be offered to Puppy users. Versions and are the current secure versions. Well, as secure as Adobe Flash ever gets!

" This has all of the releases, but misses some betas that were better than the released version (64 bit and gflashplayer standalone for gtk1 for instance ... I have the latter and use it for my kids to be able to play flash games on an old pentium box w/ 32mb RAM) For those who have issues with a specific version, I would direct them there in order to bisectinate to find the last working version.

Flash woes

"Well done chaps, you deserve a gong! In future, it will be necessary to run a liveCD of Puppy and test for a valid FP with the chosen browser(s)before installing. Thank you Adobe for your poor coding and web blocking.

Flash suddenly disappeared
Username: Sanctioned
"I went to some sites with flash, and they displayed an icon telling me to get flash. I had 11.1 installed for Firefox 11 and it said flash is enabled and up-to-date when I went to the plugin checker. So, after some digging around, I installed the new flash player, version 11.2 that is, and hola,it worked. Thus, my question is, was it Firefox that prevented flash from working, just like it did for Java (so I've heard), or was it the flash player disabling itself once it found it is out-of-date? I don't know what was happening, and still don't, that flash just suddenly "disappeared", some mysterious thing happened...or I'm just paranoid.
