Google Chrome will Start Blocking Flash by Default


Google Chrome Stop Support to Adobe Flash Player

Chrome browser of Google will stop its support to Adobe’s Flash Player on almost all websites by the end of this year. Staff member, Anthony LaForge while posting to Google groups, had defined the plan of the company to stop automatically permitting Flash to run on websites. The plan intended to be implemented by the fourth quarter of 2016 would be seeing HTML5 replacing Flash as a much integrated media experience with quicker load times and less power consumption.

LaForge had mentioned that `if a site offers an HTML5 experience, this change would make that the main experience’. They will continue to ship Flash Player with Chrome and if a site really needs Flash, a prompt would be appearing at the top of the page when the user first tends to visit that site, providing the options of allowing it to run for that site. But the top ten website utilizing Flash would not have it disabled, according to Google. Presently the ten biggest website as per Google are Amazon, YouTube, Facebook,, Yahoo,, Yandex.rv,, and, though these may be changing towards the end of the year.

Proposal Document Outlining Change

Whitelisted websites would be having their Flash use secured for a year though it will also be reviewed during a period of 12 months. Proposal document outlining how the change would take place had been online by LaForge:

  • Flash would still be bundled with Chrome though would not be advertised by default 
  • If HTML5 is provided by a website, Chrome would automatically default to it 
  • If Flash Player is essential, a user would be prompted 
  • When a user accepts the page will get refreshed and Flash will appear on any following visits to the domain

Latest Backlash against Adobe Flash

The move is said to be the latest in on-going backlash against Adobe Flash and the platform was used to create animations, web pages as well as games from the early 2000s. However, it has been slowly replaced with more open web standards. Adobe had said, in November, that it was time for developers to move away from using Flash. The company had mentioned in a blog post that they encourage content creators to build with new web standards and would continue to focus on offering the best tools and services for designers as well as developers in creating amazing content for the web.

In July 2015, Mozilla had blocked all the versions of Flash in its Firefox browser. During the time Mozilla had said that Flash would stay blocked till Adobe releases a version which was not being actively exploited by publicly known susceptibilities and the block had been lifted few days thereafter. The death of Flash had been slow and painful with Google now planning to deal with another blow.

Google has plans to begin blocking most of Flash content with Chrome and the changeover is targeted to the end of the year. Under its existing vision, almost every website would be having Flash content blocked by default and visitors will still be capable of enabling Flash content on a site-by-site basis though would have to specially opt to do so. Flash has been a threat on battery life and is constantly found to have severe security errors and hence its ultimate disappearance would be accepted.

Adobe Issues Emergency Patch For Flash Bug


Adobe Issued Emergency Patch for Flash Media Player

Emergency patch for Flash media player had been issued by Adobe to close the loopholes in the most popularly used software. Adobe had mentioned in its security advisory, that they are aware of a report that an exploit for CVE-2016-1010 is being used in limited targeted attacks and the notice advised Flash users to install the update at the earliest. The patch in total closes 23 separate security bugs in Flash player.

Those invading the security holes would be in a position of overtaking a computer and steal valuable data or spy on the owner of the system. For updates, users need to apply the patch quickly since several of the problem related seems to be critical and of the highest level. The holes are found in Flash and in versions of the other Adobe programs utilised on several platforms and devices.

Those devices at risk comprise of Windows machines, Macs and Linus computers together with phone running Android and iOS. Several different security researches inclusive of experts at Alibaba, Kaspersky Labs, Google and Microsoft had alerted Adobe to the issue with its Flash player. Most of the security firms have suggested that users could uninstall the flash player in order to refrain from being victim to malicious attachments or booby-trapped webpages.

Recommended to Uninstall Flash/Java/Silverlight

The patch brings about the latest version of Flash to for Windows and Mac and for Linux. Readers are recommended to uninstall Flash, Java and Silverlight browser extensions to check if they are essential. For several individuals, it is not essential and the reduced attack surface had lowered the chances of being visited by remote code-execution attacks.

Those who tend to depend on Flash in order to access the intranet of a company or any other site should consider utilising a dedicated browser for the same. In an effort at preventing attackers, several of the web firms have now stopped using Flash. Recently most of the other companies had issued security patches and the update of Firefox closed 40 single susceptibilities, which were over half of those considered as critical.

Security Bulletin Released By Adobe

Besides, Google has also issued for Chrome an update which among others had closed three security holes considered as `high’ severity and paid bug bounties amounting to $13,000 to the two researchers who had exposed the loopholes. Microsoft had recently issued its steady monthly security update which had attempted 13 issues in various programs comprising of the Internet Explorer as well as Edge browsers.

A security bulletin APSB16-08 had been released by Adobe acknowledging Kaspersky Lab for reporting CVE-1015-1010. The exposure could probably enable an attacker to take control of the affected system. The researchers of Kaspersky Lab researchers observed the usage of this weakness in a limited number of target attacks.

Adobe had mentioned in a December statement that though standards such as HTML5 would be the web platform for the future for all devices, Flash tends to continue to be utilised in main categories like Web gaming as well as premium video wherein fresh standards would have to be fully mature.

Adobe Chief- Mobile a Huge Positive for Us

Chief executive of Adobe System informed CNBC that the shift from personal computers to smartphones and tablets has been a big positive for the company. Though the company tends to attract an excess of photographers, illustrators, videographers and animators, Adobe has been well known for its image editing software, Photoshop as well as for introducing the portable document form – PDF that has been an internationally accepted medium of sharing electronic documents. Photoshop together with the other provisions from the California-based company is also available on Apple’s iOS as well as Google’s Android systems.

In an interview with `Squawk Box’ of CNBC, the CEO of Adobe, Shantanu Narayen had commented that the whole mobility phenomenon is a tailwind for their business. Being in the front of the pack in mobile setting together with millions of applications available as well as new one created daily, could be a tall order. The image editing offerings of Adobe, like Photoshop and Lightroom tends to compete with hundreds of other identical applications on iOS and Android operating system, comprising of Instagram, VSCO and Camera360. News site CNET and RBC Capital Markets had carried out a non-scientific survey and had observed that Adobe’s PC-based users were not always quick in adopting its mobile apps.

Adobe’s Creative Cloud – Collection of Multimedia Software

The data release last month indicated that among the respondents who had subscribed to Adobe’s Creative Cloud, 43% do not tend to utilise any of the mobile apps of Adobe. CNET had mentioned in a report that only around one in four seem to use the Photoshop Fix app to touch images and one in five seems to use the Photoshop Mix app for combining photos. Adobe’s Creative Cloud is said to a collection of multimedia software which is available for download through the internet on the basis of subscription. However, Narayen stated that the survey findings were more nuanced. He commented that he was of the belief that there is the half empty, half full scenario there. The half full scenario is that the number of people who have now downloaded the application and are using it as part of the workflow over the last year and a half, has absolutely exploded.

Photoshop Fix/Photoshop Mix – De-Facto Standard

He further added that for anyone who would prefer to do a serious content creation there is still the only game in town. Lightroom Mobile products which the survey spoke about together with Photoshop Fix and Photoshop Mix were rapidly becoming the de-facto standard for high-end image editing. Narayen had estimated around 60 million downloads for Adobe’s mobile apps in the iOS and Android ecosystems.

He had stated that another area of growth for Adobe was in its marketing cloud business which is a sequence of internet-based software for the marketers. He mentioned that every individual business needs to have a digital experience which they could then provide to their customers, irrespective of being in hospitality or financial service. He added that the market cloud business enables to deliver those experiences.

Hackers Unearth Major Security Flaw That Affects Adobe Flash Player

A major gaping hole is found in the popular Adobe Flash Player software used for watching videos online on a global scale. This flaw allows the attackers to take control of user’s system once they visit any malicious website.

Hackers Team which is known to create surveillance software for governmental agencies had stumbled upon this flaw when 400 GB of data was stolen from it over the weekend. Adobe had cleared all the speculations surrounding the emergence of this serious flaw and it had promised to make a fix available to all the users by Wednesday.

All You Need To Know About The Flaw In Flash Player

This serious flaw is present in the Adobe Flash Player and its earlier versions, which were released for all the major OS like Windows, Mac and Linux. Adobe stresses on the fact that this flaw can be used to cause a sudden crash and act as a backdoor for the attackers to take control of affected system.

Hacking Team had described this bug as a fascinating bug, which had come to light in as many as four years of successful running of Flash player. The severity of this flaw is extremely high and some of the hackers are already utilizing it for a long time to create undue nuisance for the users with affected systems. The internal documents also stress on the point that it can be used as a weapon on mass scale to cause considerable loss of information and high-jacking of systems on a larger scale. Until a fix or security update is provided by the Adobe it will be wise to disable the Flash Player completely in the browsers to avoid further damages.

Hacking Teams Cautions Windows Users

The data released by the Hacking Team also reveals about vulnerability in the Adobe font drivers in Windows. The flaw in Flash Player has high severity rate in both 32 and 64 bits versions of Windows OS ranging from the order XP to latest 8.1. Windows computer is at greater risk of losing control to the hackers with the presence of this flaw. For successful taking control a hacker will have to rely on other vulnerability of font driver. Microsoft is quick to give heed on this situation and they are actively working on bringing a security fix for its users.

Hackers Are Already Exploiting This Flaw

Hackers Team got a wind of this flaw after a mysterious hacker going by the name PhineasFisher started exploiting this flaw. He had already created immense troubles for many companies being serviced by Hackers Team which includes even some governmental institutions.

The detailed report furnished by Hackers Team states that its RCS surveillance software possess capabilities for monitoring activities on Skype, Gmail, Facebook and along with cryptocurrencies transactions. This can be helpful for companies and its clients in keeping a keen eye upon its employees. However European parliament is seriously debating upon the legitimacy of any such software being used by a governmental organization to snoop upon its citizens.

Projects " Mighty and Napoleon" Adobe announced

With Mighty and Napoleon projects, Adobe wants to revolutionize the digital drawing with magic pen. The history of Digital has always been that the combination between virtual and real. As such, what could be more symbolic than inventions such as tablet or touch pen, who tried to imitate the use of a pen on a sheet of paper to free our imagination? However, as soon as we feel the need to scribble, we still prefer to use an ordinary pencil badly cut that the most powerful tablets!

This is why the creative software giant Adobe (known in particular for Photoshop) was floored for several months on the subject to invent the smart pen Mighty and Napoleon numerical rule , two innovations that could change the lives of creative. Mighty is a high-precision touch pen that stands out above all of its many competitors by its high accuracy. Indeed, sensors differentiate between the tip of the pen (writing) and fingers (which control additional functions: Delete, or go back etc.

Mighty and Napoleon
Moreover, Mighty leverages cloud computing and provides access to many tools, such as different types of lines and colors, as well as all of your own creations, regardless of the medium used. In short: scribble something on your Smartphone in the subway and the image will be available on any device connected to it with the push of a button! The other big news is Napoleon, a small strip which, when pressed on the tablet allows you to draw lines or perfect with a simple tap of the stylus curves.

As Mighty, Napoleon has a magical little button that provides access to its many options. The two objects, whose sophistication is matched only by the clean lines, communicate them to enrich the virtual design. You have to see it to believe it! Artists with the soul of a geek (or geek with an artist's soul, it depends) must wait until the first half of 2014 to test these two jewels of technology. Note that this is the first time that Adobe is trying to manufacture an electronic object. The next sign of artistic revolution thanks to digital technology!

Adobe Premiere Pro CC v7.0.1

A month after its release, Adobe has updated Premiere Pro CC with version 7.0.1. In addition to bug fixes, the main novelty of this version 7.0.1 is to facilitate collaboration by allowing users to Premiere Pro and Prelude. Adobe Anywhere tool is to organize and streamline the capture and adding videos with a subscription of 24 60 € / month. To work together by exchanging data via Adobe Anywhere for video service. Later, at the end of the year, After Effects users should also be able to use this service. Adobe's video applications can be used by the project, with only one user at a time. But Now Adobe Anywhere allows multiple users to share the same resources like file, audio and video files, and edited sequences, metadata files to clarify the information and make quick searches placed in a database. The data are not placed locally in the computer hard drives of the creative team working on the video project: they are stored in a server that can be found in by the company which may in another city or another continent.

 The platform allows Adobe to share access to files and avoid conflicts when two users want to make changes had the same time on the same file and keep a history of changes. Adobe Anywhere platform is based on the Hub Anywhere Collaboration and the nodes using the Streaming Mercury Engine. This is supposed to allow the use of video files via internet in native resolution without loss of frames. It is no longer necessary to use low-resolution proxy. And we add the nodes, the more you can increase the workload and the number of users working together on a project. Mercury streaming algorithms should allow the transmission of real-time video streaming in, but it will require a decent connection to function properly. Specifically, Adobe Anywhere allows you to work on content placed on both local servers located at the other end of the planet with a computer that does not need to be a top model. When editing in Premiere Pro, the operations performed on movies such as positions, durations, blending mode etc are not calculated and performed locally in the user's computer.

 Instead, Adobe Anywhere will do perform all editing operations and reports directly from the remote server project. Premiere Pro does therefore need to send the actions that the user has done on movies streamed he received from the server, and display the result of assembly operations and made it comes from provided in the form of a streamed video. In other words, the editing software Premiere Pro 7.0.1 CC is confident to perform all tasks requiring high working power to the server, a user can simply turn on a MacBook Air as simple as a machine. For cons, the server side as data storage, it will take a minimum of professional equipment that can be a hindrance for very small structures. Bandwidth usage and servers have to predict the risk of a bottleneck and it will take a few months to see if the choices of technology Adobe are effective. One may well ask whether the lack of After Effects at the moment in Adobe Anywhere solution is not much difficult to manage due to the time calculations made which are much more numerous and complex than After Effects Premiere Pro, as soon as a project has a large number of layers and effects in power hungry as those requested by plug-ins, for example, Trapcode Particular and 3D Element. Adobe does not specify how Adobe Anywhere manages a group of users which one would make from time to time of installation work offline on a project: a weekend spent in the countryside, without an internet connection, for example. When the user reconnects to the Adobe platform Anywhere with a different version of the timeline compared to that found on the server, which has been changed in the meantime by other users, what will happen? If there are conflicts between two versions of a project, because it has been modified off line, what happens? What "cut" will be a priority? Adobe will require there to be online constantly to be able to use Premiere Pro with Anywhere? Similarly, the complete dependence on remote servers, and the risks of illegal intrusions could also be considered as an Achilles heel for large structures that reliability and safety are the essential bases. A remote server accessible online makes the connection reliability and redundancy solutions backups backup server that houses the media and the Adobe Anywhere platform even more essential.

 In a user working on a video project "old", each on his computer, in case of problems with one of them, only the data of the latter group are lost. But with Adobe collaborative solution, if the server and the Adobe platform Anywhere who are victims of an incident, all users in the group do not they may find themselves deprived of the project and media? It remains to be seen how promising the Adobe Anywhere platform keep its promises. If it does, this way of working much more collaborative would revolutionize the way many production companies and studios work.
