Adobe's long-time favorite plugin is no longer welcome on the web, says Facebook's new chief security officer.
In tweets posted over the weekend, Alex Stamos, who joined the social networking giant from Yahoo last week, said the popular web plugin used for videos and games had to go.
"It is time for Adobe to announce the end-of-life date for Flash and to ask the browsers to set killbits on the same day," he said in one tweet. He followed up in another tweet, adding: "Even if 18 months from now, one set date is the only way to disentangle the dependencies and upgrade the whole ecosystem at once."
It's time to kill Flash, says Facebook's new security chief
With three 0-days for Flash Player under a week/a week and a half, I think a lot of users will start agreeing with what Stamos said and hopefully many will jump in the bandwagon and uninstall Adobe Flash Player or disable it in all their web browsers.
