It sounds like Facebook’s new head of security has a strong opinion on what should be happening with the less-than-secure Flash platform from Adobe. In the article linked below, you can see a couple of Tweets he sent out on the subject.

Here’s one: “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.”

There are a lot of holes in the cyber-security these days, and it seems that Adobe is at the center of some major ones.

Listen this fascinating audio post from “What Is Tech” about hacking, which is the big issue we’re dealing with here. 

Nearly every day, I get notifications of some attempted login to one of my websites. Hacking is all around us – be it scripts or bots trying to access our data or teams of government sponsored individuals searching for ways to extract data from enemies – it’s a scary world.

Be safe out there.
