In a move against the security vulnerabilities of Adobe Flash Player, Mark Schmidt, head of Firefox support, announced it was going to block the add on on Mozilla Firefox browsers to protect its users.
He also made it clear that flash was going to be blocked only till it fixed the security vulnerabilities.
Alex Stamos, Facebook's Chief Security Officer, also tweeted that Adobe should kill flash once and for all, since it has been known to be exploited by hackers many times in the past as well.
So what do you do if you use Firefox as your preferred browser and need to run flash based apps on your computer?
There are a few alternatives which are more secure than Adobe's Flash player.
Mark Schmidt himself has suggested Shumway as a replacement for flash on Firefox.
