Security threat: Mozilla blocks Adobe's Flash by default on Firefox

  • The Adobe Flash software has been blocked by default on all Firefox browser versions.

    Firefox developer Mozilla said that the block was imposed following the discovery that hackers were exploiting vulnerabilities in Flash, which is widely used on websites.

    Documents recently stolen from Hacking Team, a security firm, gave details of the bugs.

    Adobe said that it is taking the security threat seriously and working to fix the Flash bugs.

    However, Mozilla said that the block would stay till Adobe “releases an updated version” that addresses “critical security issues.”
