Flash is finally dead and buried - good riddance! :dance: If you haven't already uninstalled, now's the time. Starting January 12, Adobe will block all content that uses Flash, so keeping it on your computer is just an invitation to bad guys. Bogus Flash updates have been a popular way for them to fool people into installing malware.

"...starting today, Adobe has gone one step further and blocked Flash content entirely. When a user attempts to load a Flash game or content in a browser such as Chrome, the content now fails to load and instead displays a small banner that leads to the Flash end-of-life page on Adobe's website. While this day has long been coming, with many browsers disabling Flash by default years ago, it is officially the end of a 25-year era for Flash, first introduced by Macromedia in 1996 and acquired by Adobe in 2005."
