I have Linux Mint 17.1, and Firefox 35.0.1, and I tried to update Shockwave, Adobe says no more updates, "https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-9163" says problem is with 11.2.202.425. I have version 11.2.202.440. Why is my latest version blocked and removed from my pc?

Because it is vulnerable and 11.2.202.442 is the latest (critical) security update from Adobe. Adobe has been trying to fix some critical exploits that have been proven in wild for a couple months now.

The previous 11.2.202.440 was available as early as Jan 25.

I went to: "https://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/distribution3.html".

It gave two choices, RPM or GZIP.

I went to: "https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/"

It gave four choices, YUM, .tar.gz, rpm, and APT for Ubuntu 10.04 +.

I am not sure which of these to download for Linux Mint 17?

I did not know which version type to download, so I downloaded all of them. One finally worked. Thanks for the links!!!!!
