Adobe is Retiring Flash and You Should Too

Adobe is Retiring Flash and You Should Too

Adobe Flash, once one of the most utilized pieces of software on the Internet is being retired by the software giant. Support will stop on December 31, 2020 and like any other piece of retired software, you should remove it from any systems you have that still run it. 

Adobe first deprecated the software in 2017, but has announced that it will no longer offer support. This means that soon after the first of the year, the software will begin to show vulnerabilities and anyone still using it will significantly increase their risk of attack. 
We are suggesting that any place where you would find Flash Player, such as your Internet browsers, your mobile browsers and mobile OSs, be checked to ensure that Flash isn’t still installed on the device.

Chances are that you haven’t used Flash Player in a while as modern coding has evolved and Flash isn’t as useful as it once was. It once was the predominant multimedia platform found on Internet browsers and other applications, but soon it is about to be nothing more than a liability. 

Any legacy software that uses Flash may not function properly any longer, but there isn’t much that can be done as Adobe has set a hard deadline for you to get the software off of your systems. 

If you would like to talk to one of our consultants about how to properly remove software and keep your systems free from obvious vulnerabilities, call 954-739-4700 today.
