Mozilla blocks Flash by default on Firefox browser - BBC News

Quote
The block comes soon after Facebook\'s newly appointed security chief Alex Stamos publicly called for Adobe to kill off Flash.

\"It is time for Adobe to announce the end-of-life date for Flash and to ask the browsers to set killbits on the same day,\" he said in a tweet.

In a later message he said Adobe setting a date would help everyone plan and prepare for the day it no longer worked.

Flash, and other Adobe products, regularly feature among the top 10 applications favoured by criminals keen to compromise computers and steal saleable data because they are used on so many devices.


I simply can\'t imagine the BBC being able to cope with this at all.

I\'m not as critical of the BBC as some around here, but the death of Flash is something the BBC *really* needs to get right. The warning bells were sounded when Steve Jobs said Apple would never put flash on an iPhone, and that was five years ago. Lets hope they\'ve spent that time wisely...
