Flash – it’s the web security disaster that just keeps on giving.
Flash has been particularly popular for use on animated web sites used by K-12 schools.
Adobe this week issued a patch for its Flash Player browser plug-in containing 36 – yes, 36 – security updates.
One of these was for a critical zero-day vulnerability, which allowed hackers to crash a victim’s computer or take full control of it.
Web browsers Safari, Chrome and Firefox are now disabling Flash by default.
It really is time to re-think the need for your classes to use online resources that depend on Flash.
