Release date: June 23, 2015

Vulnerability identifier: APSB15-14

Priority: See table below

CVE number: CVE-2015-3113

Platform: Windows, Macintosh and Linux

Adobe has released security updates for Adobe Flash Player for Windows, Macintosh and Linux. These updates address a critical vulnerability (CVE-2015-3113) that could potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system.

Adobe is aware of reports that CVE-2015-3113 is being actively exploited in the wild via limited, targeted attacks. Systems running Internet Explorer for Windows 7 and below, as well as Firefox on Windows XP, are known targets.

Adobe recommends users update their product installations to the latest versions:

Users of the Adobe Flash Player Desktop Runtime for Windows and Macintosh should update to Adobe Flash Player
Users of the Adobe Flash Player Extended Support Release should update to Adobe Flash Player
Users of Adobe Flash Player for Linux should update to Adobe Flash Player
Adobe Flash Player installed with Google Chrome and Adobe Flash Player installed with Internet Explorer on Windows 8.x will automatically update to version

Affected software versions

Adobe Flash Player and earlier versions for Windows and Macintosh
Adobe Flash Player Extended Support Release version and earlier 13.x versions for Windows and Macintosh
Adobe Flash Player and earlier 11.x versions for Linux

To verify the version of Adobe Flash Player installed on your system, access the About Flash Player page, or right-click on content running in Flash Player and select “About Adobe (or Macromedia) Flash Player” from the menu. If you use multiple browsers, perform the check for each browser you have installed on your system.

Pale Moon 25.5.0 Released

Pale Moon: Release notes
25.5.0 (2015-06-10)
This is an important maintenance update with mostly under-the-hood changes.


Logjam fix: Refuse DHE keys with less than 1024 key bits
Search plugin updates to re-enable Google suggestions and reduce tracking (Squarefractal)
Allow plugin-specific (.dll based) OOPP overrides also for npswf. This will not be used for the “master switch” for OOPP and Flash will still be in the plugin container, unless a specific dom.ipc.plugins.enabled.npswf*.dll boolean is set to override.
Fixed a crash during WebGL Conformance Tests for undefined indices (Toady)
HSTS preload list updates (Squarefractal)
Status bar locale addition: cs
Implemented a fix for the toolkit update service so that the same version as the current application will not be offered as a valid update (Tobin)
Reorganized the AppMenu (give equal ease for windowed and tabbed browsing, deprioritize Sync)
Disabled the Sync promo box in doorhangers.
Updated libpng to version 1.5.22
Fixed support for builds using newer freetype on Linux. (Axiomatic)
Fixed –with-system-pixman builds. (Isaac Dunham)
Updated SQLite to version
Changed the after-upgrade page loaded to the release notes instead of the home page.
(and hoping people actually do take a moment to read them, preventing unnecessary support requests)
Fixed navigator.geolocation – should never be null, to properly adhere to the specification (Travis)
Moved paintlock event delay to greprefs, and adjusted it for 2015’s heavier sites
Fixed the about dialog scripting for pre-release builds (includes build date now as-intended and no longer errors the script)
Reorganized how pushed floats are handled in layout flow
Implemented a change to run the updater from the install directory instead of copying it.
Fixed transparency of the Pale Moon document icon for 256×256
Updated padlock code:
– Added mixed-mode shading, and reorganized shading pref values more logically
(0=off, 1=secure only, 2=secure+mixed, 3=all)
– Cleaned up CSS
– Cleaned up padlock logic a little
Hard-coded internal UA sniffing values for the extension legacy of devtools
Updated NSPR to 4.10.8
Updated the NSS security lib to 3.19-RTM + re-worked Pale Moon changes
Bumped the built-in site-specific UA compat mode overrides to v38
Fixed a compressed-cache crash due to losing our cache entry while finishing up compression.
Updated and patched libcubeb, the main media sound library, to fix a number of audio issues (e.g. when switching output device) and audio-related crashes
Added the option to load modules into a named scope (see issue #88)
Removed quick access keys for buttons on the updater window (since it may pop up unannounced when people are typing, causing them to make unintended choices)
Updated jemalloc and mozjemalloc memory allocator libraries to improve performance
Removed implicit access to a whole range of internally-used interfaces and classes that page content has no business calling anyway
Added a preference for always preferring a certain dictionary language.
To use this, create a new preference spellchecker.dictionary.override (string) and set it to your language code.

More information about changes in this version that would be important for extension developers and web programmers can be found here.

Security fixes:

Fixes for miscellaneous memory safety hazards (relevant and applicable fixes from CVE-2015-2708 and CVE-2015-2709)
DiD (defense-in-depth) fix to prevent potential overflows in CSS restyling
Fix for updater hijacking (CVE-2015-2720)
Fix to prevent potential disclosure of sensitive information in Android logs (CVE-2015-2714)
Fix for a buffer overflow in the XML parser (CVE-2015-2716)
Fix for a potentially exploitable crash in DNS handling
