NCSC UK: Do not turn off updates to continue using Adobe Flash

The National Cyber ​​Security Center (NCSC) of the United Kingdom warned on Wednesday of the risks and complications that may result from not removing Adobe Flash Player and continuing to use the software after its December 31 (EoL) expiration date. 2020.

Troubleshooting includes businesses and other networks where legacy web applications and desktop software continue to use Flash to display multimedia content or to support features such as file uploads, file explorer, load screens, and more.

Adobe Flash

The National Cyber ​​Security Center (NCSC) fears that some system administrators - without considering their network security - may receive the wrong decision and disable updates in these applications or web browsers so that Employees be able to continue using these applications.

"To be clear: You do not need to turn off browser / platform updates to continue using Adobe Flash Player after 2020," the company said on Wednesday.

"Instead, we encourage you to work with your vendors to remove Flash dependencies. Whoever suppliers are reluctant, or unable, to do so, must be considered dangerous. "

Some software providers such as SAS, Citrix, Articulate and others have already released updates and instructions to prepare for the Flash support end. Others may not, and system administrators may need to intervene and remove software from their networks and find an alternative.

But if there's one thing IT managers can't say, it's that they were surprised. Adobe has given companies three years to prepare for Flash EOL, after first announcing it in 2017.

Browser makers like AppleThe Google, Microsoft and Mozilla have announced that they also plan to remove Flash from their products by the end of 2020 or the end of January 2021, making it impossible to play any Flash content on their products.

In a recent update to the Flash EOL page, Adobe itself asked companies to remove the software even before the end of the year, planning to ask users to uninstall Flash later this year.
