Missing signature on gcswf32.dll (Flash) unfriendly to AppLocker whitelisting

Reported by, Dec 3 2010

Issue description

Version of Google Chrome (Wrench-> About Google Chrome):7.0.517.44
Version of MSI (if applicable):
Using group policy settings? Yes

Flash fails to run in Chrome when using AppLocker DLL rules, having white listed EXE and DLLs signed by GOOGLE INC. The issue is that the Flash player DLL distributed with Chrome is neither signed by Google nor Adobe. This makes it difficult to create a viable AppLocker ruleset that allows Chrome to run correctly out-of the box.

The simplest fix would be to ensure that all DLLs distribued with Chrom are signned by Google. It would be OK if Flash were signed by Adobe but this would require a second whitelist entry for DLLs signed by Adobe.

Moving to Feature-Flash.  Definitely does affect enteprises, but we should probably be signing the DLL regardless to avoid other problems (Antivirus?) everywhere.
I'm not sure when it started but gcswf32.dll comes with a valid Adobe digital signature in Chrome 12. Seems like this issue should be closed.
