A bbc news item reports that Adobe has released an emergency update to 
the flash player. . I 
haven't found any other information however there is a version bump on 
Adobe's download page to linux-f10-flashplugin-11.2r202.336.

I downloaded install_flash_player_11_linux.i386.tar.gz and untarred it then:

# cd /usr/ports/www/linux-f10-flashplugin11/
# make extract
# cp -v ~chrisw/temp/flashplugin/ 
# cp -v ~chrisw/temp/flashplugin/readme.txt 
  cp -v ~chrisw/temp/flashplugin/usr/lib/kde4/ 
# pkg delete linux-f10-flashplugin-11.2r202.335
# vi Makefile
[ change version number to 336 ]
# make install
# pkg info -x flash

And it seems to be working in firefox and opera.

I can't find any other information about this so called emergency 
update, is the fact that there is a new version sufficient to request an 
update to the port?
