EOL. Ding-Dong, Shockwave's DEAD as of April 9, 2019. Adobe no longer supports it and just posted their very last version EVER, that being for Windows with several critical CVE patches. Good riddance. The curse is over. Read the obituary here:
https://helpx.adobe.com//shockwave/shockwave-end-of-life-faq.html

Flash will soon follow on the stroke of midnight, New Year's Day 2020. Burial party at my place! Shovels supplied. A new era of computer security is on the horizon.

Adobe can't even be called a sinking ship. It sank long ago, and Shockwave is simply a bubble being sent up from the depths.

. I swear, even Adobe®'s own website is maximally confusing on this plugin. https://get.adobe.com/shockwave/ The website says "10.7 or 10.8" (only) are supported needing Safari® browser as shown by their "System Requirements", but the link for downloading says: https://get.adobe.com/shockwave/download/?installer=Shockwave_12.1.9.160_Full_(OS_X_10.6_and_above)&standalone=1 .                                                                              ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ I peeked into the downloaded dmg and opened its pkg file with Pacifist™. The bundle it installs in the '/Library/Application Support' folder as well as the bundle it installs in the '/Library/Internet Plug-Ins' folder both show this: > <key>DTSDKName</key> > <string>macosx10.6</string> in the bundles' "Contents/Info.plist" files. Seems the pkg also installs several framework bundles which also all show the same key/value pair. And many Xtra bundles again all showing the same key/value pair. And guess what? It installs just fine for my Firefox/Nightly gear where it is duly recognized while running under 10.6.8 (/me still stuck using this dilapidated "iMac6,1" model). However, I feel the dmg also contains an Uninstaller app which is incorrectly marked as Not Runnable on 10.6 — for grins I changed its Info.plist file to allow running on 10.6, and it did successfully do what it says here. And the "plugincheck" page at Mozilla.org shows this as an "Unknown Plugin" even tho it displays the correct (new) version/level. So Adobe® still has some 'repairs' to do with this code, if they want to earn my trust, at least. This also means I once–again request MU to show this data to Adobe® on my behalf at least, since I still am not allowed to do so with their websites (they still contain many gizmos which won't pass my thick security filters). For the time being, I am telling Firefox to disable this plugin. :)

Oops. New version (12.1.8.158) was released today. Apparently, installer for this new version once again refuses to see Yosemite as a viable platform, and refuses to install. Keep your old installer (12.1.7.157) around, just in case.

I always download Shockwave updates, just in case, but I no longer install them. I've yet to actually need it for anything. While Flash content is still common on the web, I never encounter anything that requires Shockwave. Maybe I'm going to the wrong web sites. Who uses Shockwave, and what for?

This version (12.1.5r155) is NOT a security update. I'm entirely confused why the notes here on MU mention CVE issues from 2010, four years ago. Obviously, these CVE issues were patched four years ago, not now in 2014. There is no Adobe security bulletin for this version and there won't be. It was released December 11th, 2014. So, huh? - - In any case, it's worth keeping Shockwave up-to-date.
