Well tbh Facebook is probably secure, just not the information users submit to the site.

Facebook is incredibly secure from intrusion. It has to be, they have to make sure they are the only vendors of your data.

huh? how much RCE has come from faceboom bugs/security issues?

adobe's platform is a leader of the pack with respect to critical security issues in their software.

You're assuming that the security vulnerabilities are unintentional. They may be doing exactly what they should be doing to maximize profits.

It seems like Adobe has as many security problems as anyone else, it's just that enough people use their products to call their userbase everyone, and so people are more eager to find those exploits.

I believe facebook is secure in the fact that they don't let you have the data they don't want you to have, but security is easy when your whole business is about being insecure and letting everyone read all the data.

My expert opinion on Adobe Flash is that it sucks with the force of a thousand supermassive black holes.

I wish they would announce the end-of-life date for Facebook.

I'd love to see it opensourced instead of being killed off.

Just image the steaming pile of shit tagged with comments with 100s of names like Pramod, Deepak, and Ranbir: "Renamed variable to fix buffer overflow. Added one here, not sure why it mostly works. Adobe pays me by the line, it sure is hot in Mumbai right now."

Oracle should work on ending the Java plugin as well, but that probably isn't going to happen anytime soon for a variety of reasons. The positive security impact would be great though.

Chrome is taking action on their own and ending support for the NPAPI plug-in, so that's a plus.

The only difference I'll notice as an end user if Flash disappears is that I don't have to update it every other day, and that I don't have to forget unticking the "instal McAfee" box every time I update.

Fucking McAfee box.

I think Firefox is the only browser without native Flash support now, don't need to download the actual plugin for IE 11 or chrome at least....not sure about safari/opera..

It feels like everyone forgets that flash is an animation tool. It's great at that! You can make wonderful cartoons with it!

Somehow it got shoehorned into all of these roles it doesn't fit in, though.

I'm always surprised that we haven't moved past Flash by this point- it was dated and slow in 2005, and it hasn't improved much.
