In Firefox on Linux, I tried the Mozilla "plugin check" available from:

It's also linked from inside Mozilla in the "Tools->Add-Ons" page in
the Plugins tab ("Check to see if your plugins are up to date").

It reports:

  Potentially vulnerable plugins:

  Shockwave Flash
Shockwave Flash 10.1 r999.
Gnash 0.8.10, the GNU SWF Player. Copyright (C) 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010,

For more information about Gnash, see
Compatible Shockwave Flash 10.1 r999.

  Status:  Outdated Version
  Action:  [Update]

Pressing [Update] tries to download Adobe flash (I didn't follow
through to see what happens if I try).

It should instead be checking against versions of the Gnash plugin,
not the Adobe plugin!


PS:  Is this because there's now a Flash 11 or 12, and we only claim
compatability with Flash 10.1?
