The popular but slowly dying Adobe Flash Player for Android has just received another update today in the Android Market. With Adobe not officially supporting Android with or after 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in general this update is a bit confusing as it mentions “compatibility with Android 4 supported devices”. Adobe has also addressed some vulnerabilities in the security of the app.
The full information of bug and security fixes can be found here. Adobe specifically mentions added support for Android 4.0 ICS devices, as well as improvements with video while pausing on Ice Cream Sandwich. Apparently there were some vulnerabilities to Adobe Flash that could cause a potential attacker to take over, so that has also been addressed.
Basically we have a few small bug fixes, performance enhancements, and they’ve solved some security issues they found in-house, that weren’t yet a problem. With Flash not supported in Chrome for Android, and them slowly stopping support for Android 4.0 devices we have a feeling Adobe Flash wont be around our parts much longer. Either way the update has some security patches so I’d be updating right about now. Get it from the link below.
