Adobe Company is ending Adobe flash.





Adobe announced Tuesday July 25, 2017 that the company would stop providing updates and stop distributing Flash Player at the end of 2020.The move has been applauded by many, as Adobe Flash has been infamous for frequent zero-day attacks, which is why it has long been one of the favorite tools for hackers and cyber criminals.

It's been two decades since Adobe Flash has ruled the Web Space Animation Arena, which was the de facto standard for playing the online videos, but hackers increasingly found ways to exploit security holes in the technology and hack into user's computers.

"We will stop updating and distributing the Flash Player at the end of 2020 and encourage content creators to migrate any existing Flash content to these new open formats," Adobe said on its website.

Until 2020, Adobe will still be partnered with Apple, Google, Facebook, Microsoft and Mozilla to offer security updates for Flash Player in their web browsers as well as support new versions of the software, but the company will not provide any new Flash feature.

The end date of Adobe Flash Player is Dec. 31, 2020. However, the company will provide best in class animation and video tools such as Adobe Animate (the company's Premier Web animation tool for developing HTML5 content).
