Adobe has posted an update for its Flash plugin, version 15.0.0.239, to address a critical remote-code-execution vulnerability. This will be the Photoshop giant's second …

    A simple patch on Linux

    If you use Chrome on Linux then you can use libpepper. Since around Chrome 3x it runs everything I've ever come across Flash-wise once you turn off the safety checks - my classic test is Farmville 2 in fullish screen, works even without resorting to Bumblebee/Optimus.

If these fucking fucks aren't releasing code with nine fuckillion security vulnerabiliies then they're simply releasing fuck which outright doesn't fucking work.

    Fuck.

    Almost had that moment of hope:

    "Adobe has another go at killing Flash hijack flaw"

    until I realized that title had a few words in it beyond my first impression. Specifically the words 'has another go at' and 'hijack flaw'. The remainder would have been a truly great story.
