Update of the Day – Adobe Flash Player

Adobe will stop distributing and updating Flash Player after December 31, 2020. More about that on the Adobe Flash Player EOL General Information Page.

A few weeks days ago Microsoft released a blog called “Update on Adobe Flash Player End of Support” with details on how Microsoft will remove Flash Player by January 2021 from the new Microsoft Edge. The schedule of changes is available here.

An update titled “Update for Removal of Adobe Flash Player” will be made available to permanently remove Adobe Flash Player as a component of the Windows OS devices. That’s a good candidate for our Liquit Setup Store, so we will keep an eye on that one.

Today Adobe released version The MSI’s for Flash Player ActiveX, NPAPI, PPAPI have been published in the Liquit Setup Store accordingly. These have not been checked for MSIX readiness, because it’s a browser plug-in.

Although you can use our Configuration Wizard in both Liquit Workspace and Liquit Setup Commander to configure these MSI’s, it’s really time to say goodbye to Flash Player:

Adobe Security Bulletin APSB20-58 has more details on a critical vulnerability (CVE-2020-9746) in Adobe Flash Player. Successful exploitation could lead to an exploitable crash, potentially resulting in arbitrary code execution in the context of the current user.
