Everyone already knows that Adobe Flash Player will be discontinued in 2020, with Adobe finally admitting that it’s time for their Flash Player to take a bow and leave the online world for good. Along its journey, Flash Player has been a popular software but also the most despised one, considering all the issues it had over time.
While we’re nostalgic about Flash Player going away for good, its death is welcomed by everyone, as it is no longer a necessity and just a headache in the virtual world that works better with the HTML5 contents.
Until it is going to be discontinued, Flash Player will receive updates to fix any of its issues or vulnerabilities.
The Latest Flash Player Patch Update Focuses on Critical Bug Fixes
Adobe launched their latest update for the Flash Player to fix two critical bugs that were gateways to third parties that would have access to private data of users. This issue is familiar to Adobe, as they’ve kept on fixing a lot of these bugs until now, even on Cold Fusion, where there were three other vulnerabilities.
Why is Adobe Flash Player not getting Discontinued Earlier than 2020?
If you might have been wondering why Adobe isn’t killing off Flash faster than 2020, like right about now, then you should consider other factors. A lot of the websites we still visit have some Flash player content and there are still developers that haven’t migrated their software to HTML5 yet. And Adobe understands this problem and is patient with all those developers.
Most enterprises will have to manage the transition on their own, by either training their employees to work on HTML5 or hiring new ones to start working on the migration. It’s either that or let your business die with Adobe Flash Player in 2020.
