Flash Updates?



  • Is Vivaldi using Google's update mechanism to make sure Flash is updated? I just downloaded the latest dev release and it's showing 20,0,0,267 installed, with anything < than 20.0.0.270 is vulnerable to an exploit that is now part of Angler (and other) exploit kit.

    Vivaldi works exactly like Chromium, Opera, Iron and others Cr derivatives.

    It needs the PPAPI version of the flash player plugin, and the updates are set up there, during the usual Flash player installation phase.

    So if you choose to not doing automated upgrades to flash player you need to get the updated Flash package, manually.



  • Tanks Solutor! Are these PPAPI sources usually behind the official Chrome instance in terms of third-party application updates?
