See bug 1101613 comment # 6 for the 'removal of the Google Earth plugin'
from the Plugincheck Database (in November 2014).
Has version info for the Google Earth plugin.

N.B.
When I first read bug 1101613 I misread it.
The list of plugins in bug 1101613 comment # 0 is so similar to the
'list of 37 plugins that Schalk was going to include in the JSON List'
(bug 956905 comment # 75) that I thought the 'list in bug 1101613 comment # 0'
was 'plugins being kept in the Database'.  In fact it is the opposite:
i.e. 'plugins that are going to be deleted from the Plugincheck Database'.

Four points.

1. The Plugincheck Database included the following data about the 
Google Earth plugin, on 2014-09-10, as it appeared in the 'JSON List'.

N.B. This is not 'all the data about the Google Earth plugin' that was
in the Database.
It is only the 'extract as on 2014-09-10 that was exported to the JSON List'.

*** It was NOT the latest version, "7.1.2.2041" is the latest version. ***

2. I have checked that "7.1.2.2041", released in October 2013
(build 2013-10-07),
[NOT version "7.1.1.1580" that is in the 'JSON List' - above]
is the latest version.

3. I still have version "7.1.2.2041" and can use it to test the
Plugincheck Website.

(from about:plugins)
>    File: npgeplugin.dll
>    Path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Google Earth\plugin\npgeplugin.dll
>    Version: 7.1.2.2041
>    State: Enabled
>    GEPlugin
> 
> MIME Type             Description      Suffixes

I recommend that you put both "7.1.1.1580" marked "vulnerable"
and "7.1.2.2041" marked "latest" into the Database.

4. The 'JSON List' (above) did not have a URL for Google Earth.

I think the best URL is
http://www.google.com/earth/
The "Download Google Earth" button there will redirect to the
localised version of Google Earth.

For example, the British version of the plugin is at:
http://www.google.com/intl/en_uk/earth/explore/products/plugin.html

I can test this, because I have the Google Earth plugin, when it has
been added back into the Plugincheck Database.
