The Mint Flash plugin provided with Linux Mint 14 needs to be updated to the latest version for Linux. The current "mint-flashplugin-11" is at version 188.8.131.52 which apparently is already behind in Flash security updates put out by Adobe and is now considered a security risk. The latest version for Linux just put out by Adobe is version 184.108.40.2063 which is already available via Ubuntu's "flashplugin-installer" package (as version 220.127.116.113ubuntu0.12.10.1) for Linux Mint 14. Here's the link to the article explaining the problem:

Hoping that Mint's Flash plugin package is updated fairly soon.
