The vulnerabilities allow attackers to remotely control your computer through malware that infects your browser when it lands on a compromised website or runs a compromised Flash-based ad.

Much of the content that's currently Flash-based also has alternate versions based on HTML5, which is more advanced and much less risky.

WINDOWS 10 tech preview: for those who are using the "new" operating system, BEWARE!!

it is not possible with the new WIN10 to disable and it is not possible to uninstall adobe flash player (18X) from the oeprating

system.

MS has made it obvious they want adoble flash to support edge/spartan...but it is also clear that HTML5 works just find with IE11

and prior versions.

what this shows me, is that MICROSOFT is hoping you don't notice as they experiment with your security..

if you think WIN10 is secure, think again..

here is my prediction for 2015/16: massive market shift to apple and google products as windows heaves it last sighs of heavy

handed heavy gutted nonsense on the market.

and about time, this creature called microsoft was a joke ten years ago...it is not shocking they want to ship adobe flash ..and

make it impossible to remove it.

think about it..

the most widely distributed operating system vendor in the world, insisting that adobe flash is important.

think clearly about what they are really doing here...

and move away...very fast..very far.

it will die..I give it six months.

My method works best! Simply uninstall Flash and never re-install.

Alas, so much uses Adobe Flash Player that removing it completely also limits a lot of things you can access online. Many things use it.
