Sicherheit[German]Adobe released an update for the Flash Player on May 12, 2020, which updates it to version 32.0.0.371. It seems, that this just a maintenance update. Here is some information about this update.

Blog reader ron D mentioned the update to Flash Player Version 32.0.0.371 within this comment. Also blog reader Tom mentioned this Flash update.

Not a security update

There is no security bulletin from Adobe, so there are not security fixes. The Release Notes says, there are ‘assorted fixes’, but without details. According to this page Adobe has updated the Flash Player to version 32.0.0.371.

The ActiveX addon for Edge and IE is still at version 32.0.0.330. The background is in my opinion that Microsoft will only roll out fixes for Flash if they close security holes. The Adobe Flash Player 32.0.0.371 is provided for the platforms Windows 7, Macintosh, Linux and Chrome OS. The download links can be found in the download center or here. Direct download links are available at deskmodder.de.

Flash Player

If Flash Player is updated via the download center, please ensure that the optional offers (McAfee Security Scan Plus and True Key from Intel) are not installed. In my case, however, the checkboxes were no longer checked in the browser in the last few months – Adobe seems to have changed something.

Which Flash Player version do I have?

The installed Flash version can be checked on this page. There you can see whether the Flash Player is supported in the browser (in Chrome Flash is deactivated by default).

Check Google Chrome for updates

With the Chrome browser, the update should be applied automatically. You can also check for updates manually by typing chrome://components in the address bar (works for Chrome, not for Iron).
