WARNING TO ADOBE FLASH USERS IN CHINA

For Adobe Flash (plugin/standalone player) users, if you need taking your computer to China(PRC), you will be asked to install a Chinese customized version of Flash Player(by detecting with China IP when you browse internet), which has a "Flash Helper Service" installed, and that service is done by Chinese company for collecting user data to Chinese Government/Police.

So if you need to bring your computer to China(PRC), it is better to keep it in version 29. (PepperFlash from Google Chrome official builds are also affected.)

For Flash plugin comes from Windows Update (for IE/Edge use) is not affected.

@roytam1

This is good information. Additionally, I must point out that Chinese users will not be able to download localized versions of the Flash Player in China, according to a staff moderator on the Adobe Community forum:

Offline installer (May 24, 2018)

However, users can access the final English version of the Flash Player version 29 (29.0.0.171) you cited, from my FTP here:

http://sdfox7.com/xp/sp3/EOL/flash_sse_29.0.0.171/

http://sdfox7.com/xp/sp3/EOL/flash_sse_29.0.0.171/install_flash_player.exe (Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome ≤ 44)
http://sdfox7.com/xp/sp3/EOL/flash_sse_29.0.0.171/install_flash_player_ax.exe (Internet Explorer)
http://sdfox7.com/xp/sp3/EOL/flash_sse_29.0.0.171/install_flash_player_ppapi.exe (Google Chrome)

Release channel for Adobe Flash Player has been updated to 30.0.0.134 today July 10, and is confirmed working on Windows XP. 

However, for those wanting old-fashioned sha1 Digital Signatures that can be validated by Windows XP, the direct download links are those below:

Internet Explorer ActiveX:
http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/pdc/30.0.0.134/install_flash_player_ax.exe

Mozilla Firefox NPAPI (also for Opera Presto/Google Chrome 44 and earlier):
http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/pdc/30.0.0.134/install_flash_player.exe

Google Chrome 45 through 49 PPAPI:
http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/pdc/30.0.0.134/install_flash_player_ppapi.exe

... as usual. :yes:

@dencorso

Your point  is valid, but only for the time being. Please read on: 

I have decided to get away from posting direct links to specific versions of Flash Player, because these Adobe links quickly become broken / disabled after the next one or two immediate updates.  So I now use the generic links. 

It is fine to put links for specific versions, but it is important to recognize that people referring to these posts and attempting to download using these links in the future will be unsuccessful.  So, our posts with direct links for specific versions well eventually break. 

For example, the direct links in this post by @Bersaglio no longer work:

https://msfn.org/board/topic/174085-newest-adobe-flash-and-shockwave-and-java-too/?do=findComment&comment=1150533

Even the links for the relatively recent 29.0.0.171 release from May 2018 no longer work:

http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/pdc/29.0.0.171/install_flash_player_ppapi.exe

http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/pdc/29.0.0.171/install_flash_player.exe

http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/pdc/29.0.0.171/install_flash_player_ax.exe

Yes, VPN(but not OpenVPN or PPTP) are needed to access "real" internet in China. Facebook/YouTube/Google Services/WhatsApp/Telegram/etc. are blocked by GFW.

What you posted is what I'm more familiar with from posts by Bersaglio ... IE ActiveX and NPAPI . These flash downloads can be confusing to me. I guess these newer downloads are still working with a Pentium M processor ... I show MMX, SSE and SSE2 with CPU-Z.

If SSE2 is shown in CPU-Z, then you will be fine with newer Flash Player plugin.

Your point  is valid, but only for the time being. Please read on:

Most people are not even aware that each of the three types of flash player installers come in two different flavors:
(i) one signed with sha256 (which XP considers invalid because it does not know how to authenticate, despite their being OK), which can be downloaded from the links you posted;
(ii) another signed with sha1 (which XP does authenticate as OK), from the links @Bersaglio used to post and which I have posted this time, since he didn't. Those links change with every new version, but are easy to create by hand once the version number of the latest release is known.
However both flavors of installers have the same payload, for each one of the three existing types of flash player.
Now, those who find what I just said confusing or do not know what I'm actually talking about may as well ignore it totally, since it's just a daetail of little importance for most of us, except for those affected by supermegaueberparanoid (me included, in this case) tendencies, and want to validate the installers before use, without having to make use of a Vista+ machine just for that. That's all there is to it, :angel

Roy is from Honkong so do not need to use VPN at all.

I have used YouTube and Facebook when I visited HK last year.

If you are using phones from xiomi,huwei and OnePlus then congratulations your all sensitive data are with Chinese government they may sell in restaurant too to eaten by military services in a top class Chinese restaurant.

May be other Chinese companies are too involved. I know Alibaba do the same . If you are using UC browser great job to share information with big brother of NSA.

Edit:

Moreover Chinese don't treat foreigners well . They don't liked me when I visited Senzen . After all I found a guy who is teacher over mobile repair school .he helped me . Thought I stayed for just 48hours.

The case is different in HK and Taiwan . People treated really well to me . Only problem was Taiwanese don't fairly understand neither of my CHT and CHS ascent but that not the case in HK. I found a Lady who is a engineer over Cmedia technology group. She know English and helped me a lot in my stay over Taipei. I never know before meeting her that Asus xonar use chipset from Cmedia. Even I saw Cmedia logo of Cmedia over one  ic of xonar DG.

I am confirmed no folks are like Chinese government .
