Oh the joy's of Flash!

Just a day after the new updates and releases, a critical vulnerability (CVE-2015-7645) has been identified in Adobe Flash Player 19.0.0.207 and earlier versions for Windows, Macintosh and Linux. Successful exploitation could cause a crash and potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system.

I sure wish CR used HTML5 which now has copyright protection as well as a faster load time, better libraries.

HTML5 does not have copyright protection... You still have to use their party software (or add-ons/extensions) if you want to have DRM in a HTML5 player and therefore the security risks come with the third party software. But if you don't want to get affected by the virus... Then how about NOT going to sites that aren't trust worthy? And not just any random website someone links to you...

And whatever you do have a secure network and not open since that's how things like this happen. People with open networks are the once who get affected by thigns like this easy

who cares about viruses and video stability when a virtually non-existent copyright issue is more important amiright?
though the copyright holders would have to agree to use html 5. not going to happen even when it's more beneficial to everyone.

Fuck flash. Its the ONLY thing that can bring my Linux system to a halt. 2x3.0ghz cores both running flash at 100% usage.... Sky rim is easier to play than flash video.

Wish I had that luck... I'm constantly finding things that bring my system to a screeching halt. Unlike Windows, though, there's actually shit I can do about it, usually. XD

(In fact, just a few days ago, had a problem with tumblerd, the daemon that generates thumbnails in XFCE, and was able to correct it by changing the config file, something Windows usually makes impossible.)

Still, yes. Fuck Flash.
