Thanks for the heads up. Never a dull day, as long as you have Flash installed on your systems.

So lovely to have this come out on a Friday.

Job security at least, I suppose.

Thanks for the head's up, Dan. Appreciate it. AutoPKG to the rescue.

I think they released it early yesterday morning. I downloaded it from the Flash Distribution site first thing in the morning and pushed it out. Then I saw the news reports today so I checked the version and it's as up to date as it gets: 21.0.0.182

Oh, awesome. I just downloaded Adobe Flash this morning, not knowing about this advisory. Better speed up the deployment.

Are you having luck getting Google Chrome to load the latest Adobe Flash (Pepper) update? I'm showing that it installs a sub-foldered Pepper plugin but that the Chrome browser doesn't actually load it as reported in Chrome by the website "about flash player".

/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/PepperFlashPlayer/PepperFlashPlayer.plugin

Google reports that they manage their own Chrome Pepper Flash internally...so I'm not sure why Adobe posted their own version of it.
