Flash Exploit can nail early versions of Android

Adobe has announced a critical vulnerability in Flash Player 10.2.153.1 and earlier versions which may, and we do underscore MAY, affect early versions of the Android OS. The vulnerability causes a crash and could also allow a savvy attacker to take control of affected systems. It is usually triggered by an infect .swf file embedded into a Microsoft Word document delivered as an email attachment. Now, granted, this is going to be rare for the Android platform but Adobe felt it important enough to mention that early versions of the Bot OS may be affected.

Photoshop Touch apps on iPad open door for similar software on Honeycomb

If you are a big user of Photoshop for designing all sorts of photos and artwork or other apps in Creative Suite you may have been following the new touch apps that Adobe has for the Apple iPad. The apps include Adobe Color Lava for Photoshop, Adobe Eazel for Photoshop and Adobe Nav for Photoshop. The three apps turn the iPad into a remote panel for Photoshop image editing and manipulation using the new touch SDK.

Adobe Gets Official with Flash Update Announcement for Honeycomb

Adobe has announced that Flash Player 10.2 will be available for download through the Android Market starting March 18th. Initially designed for Honeycomb devices, this beta release is also available as a general availability (GA) release for Android handsets using Android 2.2 (Froyo) and 2.3 (Gingerbread) as well. All Honeycomb tablets need to have Google's 3.0.1 system update as well. It will be an automatic update in conjunction with Google's first system update for Honeycomb, but Froyo and Gingerbread users will have to go out and get it when it comes on the 18th.

Motorola XOOM won’t get Flash support until Spring 2011

The Motorola XOOM may be shaping up to be the first Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet to reach the market, but it won't be bringing all of its features from the start. According to a tiny disclaimer at the bottom of Verizon's listing for the slate, the XOOM won't have Adobe Flash support until Spring 2011. Adobe had already said that it was working on Flash Player 10.2 for Honeycomb, so it seems that Android 3.0 won't launch with Flash Player 10.1 as is available for current Android smartphones. Considering Flash support is an oft-cited advantage of Android over iOS on the iPad, that decision could well come back to haunt Adobe, Google and OEMs. [vms 3b03ae6d3f8540cd6362] [via Engadget]

Adobe: Flash 10.2 coming to Android

Adobe announced at Mobile World Conference in Barcelona today that source code for Adobe Flash 10.2 has been released to tier one developers and should make it's way to Android smartphones and tablets within the next few weeks.  That's moving at a pretty fast pace considering that 10.2 had only been launched on Windows and Mac nearly at the same time.  Adobe representatives also said that Android smartphones and tablets using dual-core processors will see the greatest benefit including HD video at 30 frames per second.

Advent Vega Flash Player 10.1 pulled over missing certification

Advent has announced [pdf link] that the version of Flash Player 10.1 shipped on their Vega tablet has not, in fact, passed Adobe's certification testing, and that effective immediately new Vega units will ship without the app pre-loaded. The company expects the newly tested, certified Flash Player 10.1 download to be available "in the early part of 2011." Existing owners with the uncertified Flash Player 10.1 plugin may find their slates aren't as efficient at Flash video playback as they should be, Advent warns, and they'll also be able to install the certified version when it's available. We imagine the uncertified app will be broadly available through unofficial channels in the meantime, since Vega owners will likely prefer unoptimized functionality over no functionality whatsoever. Press Release:
Important update on the Advent Vega The Advent Vega has an nVidia Tegra 2 dual core 1GHz processor, but we have just learned that the version of Adobe® Flash® Player 10.1 installed on the tablet has not completed the required certification tests by Adobe. Adobe certification is a process of testing the Adobe Flash Player on the device to ensure a consistently high user experience and compatibility with common websites e.g. iPlayer and 4 on Demand. We would like to reassure customers who have already purchased an Advent Vega, which included an uncertified version of the Adobe Flash Player 10.1; that we stand behind the quality of these tablets. However, we do need to obtain a properly certified version of the Adobe Flash Player 10.1 before pre-installing it onto further models. The certification process is currently underway and we estimate this will be complete in the early part of 2011. New stocks of Advent Vegas purchased after 13th December 2010 will not have Adobe Flash Player 10.1 pre-installed, but we will be providing a seamless and free-of-charge download of the certified version as soon as it is available. This download will also be available as an update to users who have already obtained the Advent Vega which includes the uncertified Flash Player 10.1. 1. What does this mean for me? a) If you have purchased an Advent Vega prior to 13th December 2010 Your device has an uncertified version of Adobe Flash Player 10.1. As a result, it may have not exhibit the optimal performance that the nVidia Tegra 2 processor is capable of running with certain Flash website content. Once we obtain a certified version of Flash Player 10.1 for the Advent Vega, we will provide a seamless, free-of-charge download to this version. The certified software will be available to download from our website. http://www.myadventvega.co.uk b) If you are planning to purchase an Advent Vega from 13th December 2010 onwards Your device will be shipped without the Adobe Flash Player 10.1 pre-installed. As soon as we obtain certification for Adobe Flash Player 10.1 we will provide a seamless, free-of- charge download from our website. http://www.myadventvega.co.uk 2. What do I do next? For all customers we recommend registering your Advent Vega at http://www.myadventvega.co.uk. Registering your Advent Vega will ensure we have your email address and contact details up to date. Once we have a certified version of Flash Player 10.1 available we will email all customers with an easy to follow set of instructions to install the new software and enable hardware accelerated Flash Player 10.1 support on your Advent Vega.
