Current Mac version available from Adobe.com: 25.0.0.163


Flash Player 25.0.0.127 was Released March 14. The current Release 25.0.0.148 was Released April 11 and the current Beta 25 build (for Linux/Windows at least) from April 12 is 25.0.0.156 Yet the current Release for Mac OSX is 25.0.0.163 ??? as stated on http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/

Looks like 25.0.0.163 was a update after the 25.0.0.148 security update mentioned in last April 11 Adobe Security Bulletin

That matches what I found in the blocklist.xml for the profile I just created. (I don't know why it didn't turn up in my earlier search.)

Code: Select all
</pluginItem>
    <pluginItem blockID="d20ea67f-d851-4c59-a3aa-f7081248b14e">
      <match exp="(NPSWF32.*\.dll)|(NPSWF64.*\.dll)|(Flash\ Player\.plugin)" name="filename"/>
      <infoURL>https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/</infoURL>
      <versionRange maxVersion="25.0.0.127" minVersion="24.0.0.221" severity="0" vulnerabilitystatus="1"/>


But that looks like the Windows plug-in. Linux is marked as os=Linux, but Mac isn't marked specifically, and the list isn't sorted by plug-in, so if it's there, I can't recognize it.
