I am using
chromium browser (chrome) with
Debian. I have noticed, chromium/pepperflashplugin opens a listening port on my public interface
0.0.0.0:5353 as seen with
netstat -lptun Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State PID/Program name udp 0 0 0.0.0.0:5353 0.0.0.0:* 13971/libpepflashpl
I have been using Firefox (Iceweasel) before and I have never seen browser/flash-plugin to open ports. Indeed, I have never seen any client application opening listening ports on
Why is chromium doing this?
Is this necessary ?
Can I disable this?
Can I start chromium with pepperflashplugin disabled ?
