Adobe Flash Player Will Go Down in Style

Adobe Flash Player is one of the most despised programs of 2017 for sure. People have written countless articles about how Adobe Flash Player is unsustainable, buggy and even dangerous due to a plethora of security threats discovered within its faulty coding. Such a flawed program won’t make it long on the market, right? Well, yes and no. Adobe Flash Player has been super messed up for a while now, and by while we mean quite a few years. Still, it managed to drag its semi-rotting corpse along for the ride and it piggybacked off of browsers still.

But now, after a few years of being frowned upon, boycotted, renounced and utterly despised by tech companies and users alike, Adobe Flash Player is ready to call it quits. Thus, Adobe recently announced that it will be phasing out Flash by the year 2020. A lot of people who most likely hated Adobe Flash Player before suddenly became nostalgic and tried to salvage its decomposing remains by proposing a petition to open source Flash. But let’s be real here, that will never happen. Adobe Flash Player will finally die out in peace.

But Adobe won’t let Flash go just like that, hence the program got a new update during Patch Tuesday. This update didn’t do much, but it did patch up two critical vulnerabilities in Adobe Flash Player. One of them was especially dangerous because it could have potentially allowed attackers to run lines of code on compromised computers. The new and update version of Adobe Flash Player has build number 26.0.0.151, so if you’re still using the program at least make sure you update it.

However, our advice is to get rid of Adobe Flash Player now. You’re not doing your security any favors by keeping it around.
