MS ending Flash support
« on: Saturday, 05 September, 2020 @ 19:19:34 »
Microsoft to finally kill Adobe Flash support by January 2021

Microsoft today said that it will finally end support for Adobe Flash Player in its web browsers by January 2021, confirming a coordinated announcement made together with Apple, Adobe, Facebook, Google, and Mozilla in July 2017.

Adobe says that Flash Player will no longer be updated and distributed after December 31, 2020.

In the Fall of 2020, the company will publish an 'Update for Removal of Adobe Flash Player' via Windows Update, WSUS, and the Microsoft Update Catalog that will completely and permanently remove Flash from all Windows devices.

Customers who want to remove Flash support before its official end of support will be able to use the update after downloading it from the Update Catalog and running it on their systems.
