Bug Description

Adobe has released security updates for Adobe Flash Player for Windows, Macintosh, Linux and Chrome OS. These updates address an important out-of-bounds read vulnerability that could lead to information exposure.

This affects version 28.0.0.126, which is the current package in all Ubuntu releases.

Thanks for taking your time to report this issue and help making Ubuntu better.

I see that the package was updated to 28.0.0.137ubuntu1 in bionic recently and it is also available as a security upgrade for older releases (https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/flashplugin-nonfree).

Changed in flashplugin-nonfree (Ubuntu):
status: New → Fix Released
