Incomplete Adobe Flash Installer Hosted

Hi, I'm trying to update my version of Adobe Flash.

From what I've read, I'm supposed to download the file from:

And untar it, then run some installer utility that's supposed to be there.

The problem is that the file I download only contains 1 file, a .so file. I don't see the installer utility everyone seems to be talking about. Is something wrong with the hosted tarball?

Move the so to the mozilla/plugins folder. The folder is _somewhere_ on your system, it tend to move from version to version and distribution to distribution. It may also be firefox/plugins, but as Slack is quite conservative, I don't think so.
