    This thread (https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showpost.php?p=1917128&postcount=1) mentions the availability of Adobe Flash Player 10.3.183.5.

    Anyway, as a newbie user of Mint, I was alerted that a 5146 kB adobe-flashplugin was available. The URI was "http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/natty/partner adobe-flashplugin i386 10.3.183.4-0natty1".

    There's a lot of mention of "dependencies", and that's why getting stuff from the repository is preferable. Plus, they're "signed". For most software, I use Mint's built-in alerts but for a couple, I prefer to go "direct". For both Aurora (Mozilla) and LibreOffice 3.4.2, I got the compressed files from Mozilla and LibreOffice and took it from there.

    Hmmm ...

    When I right-click on a Flash video, it shows 10.3.183.5. So how did that get there? I did check for new plug-ins via Firefox as well. Maybe that did it.
