In case anyone is confused there have been several new emergency patch updates to flash and java in the last week or so.

Current Linux Flash Version is 11.2.202.270 Check your version at http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/find-version-flash-player.html

Java latest version is Version 7 Update 13 - current version can be checked at http://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp?detect=jre

There was at least one post to this forum from someone once saying that they had seen a Flash vulnerability used to open a remote terminal window to another IP address with Puppy Linux.

Although relatively unlikely it is definitely possible for Flash vulnerabilities to be used successfully against Puppy variants - especially if specifically targeted as was the case once reported. But its up to you whether you upgrade or not.

With regards to the supposed better performance of 10 series Flash versus 11 Series, I have not noticed this myself on older hardware but your mileage may vary.

Neither of those linked pages worked correctly for me - the first was no longer available, and the Java page, while there, couldn't determine whether or not I had Java installed.

Mozilla's Plugin Check page, however, was able to detect both my Java and Flash versions correctly. So, if you're using a Mozilla-based browser (Seamonkey, Firefox, etc.), you can also use this page to check:
https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/plugincheck/
(just make sure you allow the entire page, if you have NoScript installed)

Edit: I'll have to try the latest version of Flash 11, then. I've been using a version of Flash 10 the past handful of weeks, because 11 started driving my CPU into the stratosphere, for some reason. 10 still does it, but not as much. It all started after I updated Flash 11, not too long ago.

Both these pages are available and work for me right now in Seamonkey 2.15.2 and Firefox 18.0.2 - I did have a typo in the first URL if you read my post immediately after I posted it.

If the Java version check failed then you may have the plugin auto-disabled by recent other browser security updates.

Both the page links I gave are supposed to be correct and current.

Yeah, the first link works, now. Sorry about that. Smile

I still get "We are unable to verify if Java is currently installed and enabled in your browser." from the Java page, even though my Java plugin (1.7.0_13) is active and up-to-date, according to Seamonkey's plugin list and the Plugin Check page. (Haven't tried with Firefox, but it should be roughly the same. Edit: Yeah, the exact same behavior in Firefox. Shocked )

I don't know why the Java page wouldn't work (I even fully whitelisted it in NoScript).

Say Makoto- have you created the necessary symlink? One other page Wink you can reference.

I only install TheAsterisk!'s SFS versions of the JRE - no idea whether or not it creates that symlink. Wouldn't it have a bearing on the Mozilla Plugin Check page, too, though? (You'd think that if the Mozilla page can find it, the Java page would... Very Happy)

Edit: Moved? Why? Shocked

For libnpjp2.so? I have at least two links for it - one in ~/.mozilla/plugins, and the other in ~/.usr/lib/mozilla/plugins. Both created on the 4th of this month, which is roughly the time when I upgraded the Java SFS.
(I did a manual search of those directories, not a filesearch, so if any other copies of the symlink are created, I don't know. Smile )

It's interesting that even demo apps utilizing Java Web Start on oracle's site yield "page not found" errors. I think the message is getting quite clear.
