Pepper Flash warning

I'm using the free BrowserCheck for Firefox, Safari and Chrome. Works fine.


However, it tells me that Pepper Flash is of an insecure version:


  • File checked: /Applications/Google Chrome Framework.framework/Internet Plug-Ins/PepperFlash/PepperFlashPlayer,~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/PepperFlash%dir%.plugin
  • Installed File Version: 11.8.800.66
  • Latest File Version: 11.8.800.170
  • Recommendation: Google Chrome users have Flash Player integrated into their browser. If you are using latest stable Chrome version, you will automatically get the latest Flash Player, and most users will be updated within 24 hours.


This has been going on for at least a week, and I have had Chrome update itself all it wants. But the warning persists.


What should I do about this? Just as you I was under the impression that Chrome updates itself, and should include updates for this version. Or is the case that Chrome does not update its internal Flash correctly, so it really us vulnerable?
