Flash EOL

As adobe said that is planning to drop support to flash on it's EOL next year I wonder what would it be of the current product and what to expect. Has McAfee stated what will happen?

I fear that we would have to get prepared to make a rigorous update to the latest version.

Re: Flash EOL

Chrome uses its own internal flash engine. Even if Adobe does EOL their product, you could always use the flash engine inside Chrome.

Re: Flash EOL

CHROME, Edge, and Firefox are ending flash support in 2020-21. 


"Flash will be completely removed from all browsers by December 31, 2020, via Windows Update. Companies reliant on Flash for development and playback of content are encouraged to remove the dependency on Adobe Flash prior to December 2020."

Chrome Update 76

"Adobe will also stop supporting Flash starting in 2021"

Firefox Update 69

"Firefox 69 will be Mozilla's third last step to completely dropping support for the historically buggy plugin, which will reach end of life on December 31, 2020."


Probably need to consider dropping McAfee as your SIEM if they cannot adapt or completely move into HTML5 or ELK.

Re: Flash EOL

Now that flash EOL is nearly 6 months away can anybody at McAfee shed some light on what the plan is going forward? We're running 11.3 and there's still a massive amount left to convert to HTML5. Given the glacial pace of progress since 10.3 I'm not particularly confident it will get done.


Or should I just be planning my migration to different vendor?
