Adobe Flash Player 11.4.402.278 is out.

»www.adobe.com/go/EN_US-H-GET-FLASH according to »www.free-codecs.com/Adobe_Flash_···load.htm ...

But I don't see it on »www.adobe.com/products/flashplay···on3.html and »www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/ so far. It must be early.

True...

Don't forget Shockwave as well

»Adobe Shockwave Player 11.6.7.637

Page now shows .402.278 BUT when I downloaded and ran the ActiveX MSI it upgraded me from .402.265 only to .402.267. Something is broken at Adobe.

Release notes for FP 11.4 still state that the latest version is .265, so I think we're a little ahead of Adobe. Nothing on their security bulletin page about 11.4.402.278 or the new Shockwave player either.

Given the small increments in version numbers of the FP, it may not be a security fix, just a stability fix.

Me too. Adobe wants users to use the get.adobe link so they can bundle their Flash with unwanted software so they can increase their profits. I only use the distribution page.

That's the name of the game these days. Everyone does it. Only publish stub/web installers so you can include crapware and who knows what else.

However it's not just that. I archive (full) install packages as I have multiple machines, VM's etc. I download one copy (for each O/S etc). I don't need/want to run a stub/web installer multiple times.

FYI even if web/stub installers are the only option I use this trick. Run Wireshark, or other network monitoring tool, and then the installer. Once it starts downloading cancel (if you wish). Then search the Wireshark log for .exe/.msi and find the real installer URL. Then paste that to your browser and voila you have the full install package. Some vendors go to great lengths to hide them.

As of this post Secunia is not treating it as a security patch.

Although the Distribution page claims the following:

Adobe Flash Player Distribution | Adobe
"Flash Player 11.4.402.278"
the MSI installers install version 11.4.402.267. Still. GRRRR!

Also, when I downloaded the consumer version of the installer and let it do it's thing on a test system, I got 11.4.402.278 BUT it didn't remove whatever other version (11.3.x or 11.4.402.267) I had installed using the MSI installer. DOUBLE GRRR!

I sure wish Adobe would get its act together.

I'm guessing you prefer the MSI installers vs the EXE installers for some reason?

Just downloaded the msi (plugin) & got .278.

96d41c47b8855b7dadf7b7778ad6c1cd *install_flash_player_11_plugin.msi
 
Note that other then the "msi" stuff, the msi & exe are exactly the same, as would be expected.
IOW, the msi has within a Data1.cab, & within that .cab is the exe, install_flash_player_11_plugin_11.4.402.278.exe.

OK, ditto with the msi (active x), 278

8f23f29ce09d7354ab3562f1c2d08abe *install_flash_player_11_active_x.msi
