Re: Down with Flash
"It also requires Java."

Wow.  Double-whammy.  :/

Java has been found to have more vulnerabilities than Flash, actually -- but, on the whole, they lack the severity of Flash vulnerabilities.

Down with Flash
InfoSec professionals agree, and its time industry acted.  Flash should be gone.  It should be banned.  It should be expunged.  (For goodness sakes, we have HTML5 now!)  There is no excuse anymore.

(Or, as The Register once put it: Flash apologists are "the antivaxxers of the Internet".)
