Adobe Flash nearing the end of life

Adobe Flash is nearing the end of life and will no longer receive updates as of December 31, 2020. Adobe Flash is well known for its constant updates and continual discovery of vulnerabilities and you should plan for its use coming to an end very soon.

If you have any business reason for having flash installed on your system for any reason, please let me know so we can discuss our options.

“As previously announced in July 2017, Adobe will stop distributing and updating Flash Player after December 31, 2020 (“EOL Date”). We made this announcement in collaboration with several of our technology partners – including Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft , and Mozilla – which issued complementary announcements with more technical detail on what the Flash Player EOL will mean for developers, enterprises, and consumers using their specific OS environments or browsers. ”
