YouTube today announced it has finally stopped using Adobe Flash by default. The site now uses its HTML5 video player by default in Google’s Chrome, Microsoft’s IE11, Apple’s Safari 8, and in beta versions of Mozilla’s Firefox browser.

might be very timely considering the latest zero-day exploit found.

Adobe has already fix it with the latest version 16.0.0.296

Backup now & backup often.

And now we'll see that hackers will be focussing on exploiting weak spots in HTML 5. Right ?

Hackers would have no problem exploiting HTML5 - BUT  ONLY  IF  HTML5  WAS  AN  ADOBE  PRODUCT, :P

This is much more correct than Alan's follow-up joke. Hackers (especially now-a-days) focus on the biggest target, thus if HTML5 grows larger than flash it will be the target.

 

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.

Right. In other words, users of Internet Explorer & Firefox now can expect to see (a lot of) more updates for those browsers.

It would be rather interesting if Flash continued development yet also became such an after thought that it became less exploited than HTML 5.

Fortunately most people actually update their browsers (chrome and IE both do it in the background, Firefox will ask you to do it, etc) unlike Flash. So a lot of these issues can be addressed very quickly!
