July 9, 2015 - What the HackingTeam leaks says about Freepto
You may have learned that the security company Hacking Team — specialized in system intrusion and digital surveillance — has allegedely been hacked, and a lot of their data is now freely accessible on the Internet.
It seems they have Linux exploits too, mostly based on a Flash zero-day vulnerability. Version 0.1.1 was vulnerable to this exploit, but we have no evidence that any later versions are affected.

The current situation about Flash has improved much, because Freepto has had a "click-to-play-flash" feature from 1.0.
While click-to-play is useful, it's not a magic wand: the user could be tricked into enabling Flash if the domain "looks familiar", despite the actual Flash content may not be secure.
Therefore we don't deem Freepto 1.0 to be completely safe against this attack.

Since the last development session at HackIT, we've been working on removing Flash.

For sure we need to investigate the situation better; we will keep you posted.
