Adobe Flash (formerly Macromedia Flash) is a cross-platform multimedia and software platform used to embed animations, video, and interactive applications into web pages and desktop and mobile applications and games. Flash displays text, vector and raster graphics to provide animations, video games and applications. It allows streaming of audio and video, and can capture mouse, keyboard, microphone and camera input. The ActionScript programming language allows creation of interactive animations, video games, web applications, desktop applications and mobile applications.

Need more best practices & governance on mobile codes (eg: Flash player,
Pdf reader, JavaScript, Java Applets, ActiveX) as we have a few cases of
malicious codes being run when opening Pdf & 1 case of ransomware:

a) attachmt 1 is a screen of IE setting: mostly what to set in IE to stop ActiveX
    & to set to  Med-High (guess this is also to mitigate against ActiveX ?)

b) I wud say patch the various Adobe products (we use Adobe Flash &
     Shockwave) within 1 week upon release of patches ?

c) attachmt 2 has some suggestions on ActiveX & Java only: not much

d) Does AV mitigate against mobile codes vulnerabilities?  If so, keep
    AV signatures updated   is another mitigation

e) I'm sure IPS (NIDS & HIPS) have signatures for mobile codes but in
    McAfee's case, by default, they are rolled out in Detect & not Block
    mode?  Should they be in Block mode?

f) any other best practices & governances for mobile code?

My vulnerability scanner keeps screaming that one of my Server 2012 R2 Standard servers is running a vulnerable version of Flash, which I can't find.  The server has all the latest Windows Updates and I have uninstalled the User Experience feature and rebooted and rescanned, don't know what else to try on this one.

I see Chrome has HTML 5 as it's preferred media utility.  I help with technology at a small Catholic school and I want to be able to head any conversion issues off.  Is there something I can do to prevent issues with Flash-based sites or will Chrome automatically adjust for me?

Thanks!

Flash: Good Bye and Good Riddance
Unlike yesterday's potentially overblown news about the demise of MS Paint—which was met with mixed feelings—I am quite happy to see the news of Adobe finally putting an end-date on support for Flash. It was a technology that was certainly helpful at solving the problem of online video and interactive games back in the early days, but its misuses (Flash-based site navigation, I'm looking at you!) performance inefficiencies, and security holes mean it's long past time to let it go.

I can certainly sympathize with anyone that still has Flash-based solutions they'll need to replace, though. Perhaps there'll be a nice market for developers to work on doing these conversions?

Does the PDF environment have enough ability (events and controls) to write a small applet and host it on my webpage ?

I have seen some games written as PDF, but w/o loading a bunch of software, I don't know.

Maybe Flash is what I should be looking at ?

Any help is appreciated.

What was missing? How to get to browse to the smartcard login without problem? Does this mean adobe flash player?

Appreciate for your help.

Dear Experts,
I'd like to cache my flash movie on my html page, I do not want to download it again and again from the server when the page is called. Because, I will not change it for two weeks and the file is proportionally large. As far as I know, the browsers cache flash files, but I need to be sure..
I use https ( secure connection )
I wrote my html page like this. What do you think about it?

<!doctype html>
<html>
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<meta http-equiv="pragma" content="Cache">
<title>My Title</title>
</head>

<body>
<object width="1366" height="768">

<param name="movie" value="upt_video.swf">

<embed src="upt_video.swf" width="1366" height="768">

</embed>

</object>

</body>

Hi, my Tivo bolt would like stream on my computer.  However, it says Flash Player required.  I use Chrome built in Flash.  It's up to date but obviously has its problems.  Please assist.

I cannot get Chrome to run Flash even following all the tips I have found searching for solutions. Flash works fine on Edge, Firefox and IE.

I am running:
Windows 10 Version 1703 (Creators Edition) 64 bit
Chrome 58.0.3029.110 (64 bit)
Flash 25.0.0.171

I tried all the steps in
https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/6258784?hl=en

In Chrome/Settings/Advanced/Content Settings, Flash is set to "Ask first before allowing site to run Flash" , but it makes no difference if I set it to Always.

If I go to page with Flash, Chrome never asks if I want to run Flash.

I uninstalled Chrome and reinstalled Chrome, but that made no difference.

One suggestions was to check the size of pepflashplayer.dll in
"C:\Users\[my account name]\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\PepperFlash\25.0.0.171" to see if it was 64 bit. It is 30,389 KB which indicates 64 bit.

The security privileges of "C:\Users\[my account name]\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome" (and subdirectories) allow Everyone full access.

Running Chrome as an Administrator makes no difference.

Any other suggestions?

One of my users is trying to watch some webinars that requires the Adobe Connect add-in.  The issue is that after installing the add-in under their profile it does not work and they are prompted again to download and install.  If I install the add-in under my profile (I'm an admin), it installs correctly and works.  I tested by making the user a local admin of their machine and had no issue installing or using the add-in.  Once I removed the user from the local admins group I was back to square one.  Is there a way to make this work for a non-admin or is this a bug with Adobe's software.

Thanks for your assistance!

Hello, since both Google and Firefox are killing off Flash in their browsers, do we still need update the flash player for these browsers (google/firefox) when updates for flash becomes available?
