Time to Make [Update] the Donuts [Flash for Mac]

At least one route to Satan's playground is paved with donuts and Flash for Mac is the digital analog of bleached white flour fried in hot oil

While it’s oft said that the road to hell is paved with good intentions, I believe at least one route to Satan’s playground is paved with donuts. And, in my mind at least, Flash for Mac is the digital analog of bleached white flour fried in hot oil and coated with refined sugar.

Time to make the donuts, again.

Adobe has updated Flash for Mac with important security updates and bug fixes. And, if you read the release notes, it’s mostly about Windows issues, but don’t let that stay your hand. When it comes to Mac security, there are pretty much only two ways to get hurt, Java and Adobe Flash.

• Flash for Mac 12.0.0.70 (download)
— [IE11 Win7] Flash now renders correctly on a page with both WebGL and Flash content playing simultaneously
— [Win8] Context Menus triggered by the software keyboard’s Menu key on Windows 8.x now work correctly in Modern mode
— [Installer] Resolved an issue where SCUP/CUPT catalog configuration was detecting Flash Player updates as available when users had the current version installed
— [Video] Resolves an issue injected in Flash Player 11.9.900.170 that caused Flash IP-Multicast playback issues on Internet Explorer 9 and 10 on Windows 7
— [Video] Resolves an issue injected in Flash Player 11.9.900.170 that caused the video buffer to no longer be filled if the buffer was emptied while playing an RTMP stream

Adobe recommends that all users download and install Flash for Mac 12.0.0.70 — if you’re inclined to keep eating donuts, might as well eat fresh…
