As far as I'm aware that is only applicable to the web-browser plugin version. Standalone/Projector should still work fine. At the very least 32.0.0.453 which is the last update I pushed is still working perfectly fine here. (haven't build/updated to 465 yet so I can't say anything about that)

Since 371 is also one I pushed I can try and see if it's still in a build cache of mine but don't keep your hopes up (and regardless; it really shouldn't matter for the standalone/projector version)

EDIT: Last build cache for that version was removed 6 months ago so I no longer have it and my backups for those only go back 1 month.

EDIT2: I just see that the date for the time bomb wasn't 01-01-2021 but a tad later this month so the projector might start failing later.

EDIT3: If the standalone/projector does indeed also end up containing said time-bomb, the next best solution I can think of is to use Ruffle browser addon/extension to play your flash content using your browser.

@krszalay unfortunately I've only kept the version 453, no previous binaries were saved. If you know a way to obtain it please let me know.

could we revert to 32.0.0.371? that's the last not time-bombed version according to Wikipedia

The validity check fails. What do I do?!?

When the validity check fails for the downloaded file, Adobe most likely released a new version.
Please flag it out-of-date if that is indeed the case (check the Upstream URL) instead of dropping a comment or doing nothing.

Why does this happen?

Adobe doesn't actually have the version in the filename/URL. When the build process downloads the file, it is stored locally with the version number in the name but the upstream download URL is always the same; https://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/updaters/32/flash_player_sa_linux.x86_64.tar.gz

The result of this is that when Adobe releases a new version, this file on their server is replaced and thus the file downloaded from that URL during the build process will no longer match the checksum that is recorded in the PKGBUILD.

@carloza; see the earlier messages on this subject. Making the update to the AUR as we speak.
