How Vulnerable is Adobe Flash Player Really?

If you’ve been on the Internet for long enough, then the name ‘Adobe Flash Player’ should at least ring up some nostalgia within you. Before tech companies, browsers and users started boycotting it, Adobe Flash Player used to be essential for loading multimedia such as animations, videos and other cool things. In fact, Adobe Flash Player is such a big part of Internet history that anyone who’s been into coding for the last decade or so has a strong ActiveScript portfolio.

So Many Vulnerabilities

ActiveScript is the coding language on which Adobe Flash Player functions, in case that you didn’t know this. And there is no other program on the market right not that is more flawed and vulnerable to malware and other security threats than Adobe Flash Player. In fact, Adobe, its mother company, patched 31 vulnerabilities for it just this month. So imagine how many others have existed since the beginning of this debacle.

Adobe Flash Player hasn’t always been problematic, but now it’s gotten to such an extent that Adobe officially declared it will be phasing it out entirely by the year 2020. This comes as no surprise, seeing as Apple, Google Chrome and other important companies and products it relied on have been boycotting it for a while now and refusing to use it any longer. The Internet has reverted back to HTML, now in its fifth version.

But not everyone is happy with Adobe Flash Player disappearing. In fact, users have started a petition propositioning Adobe to make Adobe Flash Player open source so that its users can fix it bit by bit. Honestly, we just don’t think that’s possible, but we do understand that a huge part of Internet history will die out if Adobe Flash Player is removed for good.
