Hey guys – you may have seen my post the other day which provided the legacy Flash files for Google Chrome. If not, you can check it here:
In that thread, I highlighted a workaround mentioned by a user on Reddit.
VMware has officially recognized the issue with a KB entry: Shockwave Flash crashes with vSphere Web Client 6.x (2151945)
The bad news is that it’s not truly fixed (but that’s not VMware’s fault). The good news is that if you followed the guide I posted and or used the Flash 18.104.22.168 archive provided in my other post then that’s also what VMware is recommending for the time being.
Do note that by rolling your Flash version back to 22.214.171.124 you are susceptible to Remote Code Execution identified in CVE-2017-11292… but you also need Flash to work so you can manage aspects of vSphere.
So in summary, you still only have two options today:
- Download Flash 27 Beta from http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer.html
- Run Flash 126.96.36.199 as documented in my other post
If/when a true fix comes out I will be sure to post!
