Spotify asks for Flash again
Yesterday the Spotify Web Player worked just fine. Today it asks for Flash - even though it IS installed and enabled - I double checked. Youtube and all other videos work without problem. This happened in every browser I had, but there were always some easy solutions for it. I can't find any for Vivaldi.
The BBC web site decided it need Flash again yesterday, so I reinstalled it (again).
There's been something up with Flash recently - both my Win10 machines installed Flash updates from Microsoft last week - and as soon as I restarted them, Adobe Flash installer asked again for another update.
I'm guessing some big security flaw was discovered and patched (twice) - so maybe sites are insisting on the very latest version now…
The flash plugin must be updated. That's all.
Just download and install it again the same way you did the first time.
So it turns out that there was a big security issue with Flash. Saw some news story saying that Microsoft and Adobe were angry because Google went public about it before it was fixed - and Google said they went public since it was already being used in the wild for wide-scale phishing activity.
And my desktop just updated it yet again (from Microsoft this time). I think that makes five updates in two weeks - a record.
Yepp, some bugs were critical. See https://helpx.adobe.com/security/products/flash-player/apsb16-37.html for the CVE numbers. You can search for details on the CVE numbers here: https://cve.mitre.org/cve/cve.html
