Adobe Flash has been an endagered technology for a number of years, but now the call for its elimination are growing very loud. Last week Mozilla blocked the plug-in in the Firefox browser.
"Adobe has tried hard over the years to improve Flash, and it has become much more responsive at dealing with security issues," says security blogger Graham Cluley. "But it's clear that online criminals continue to find critical holes in its code which they are able to exploit." Adobe, Cluley says, "should make the difficult decision to kill [Flash] off."
