No More Outdated Flash Plugins In Safari, Says Apple

Safari blocks Flash

The tech giant Apple has banned outdated versions of Flash Player browser plugin in Safari to protect it's users from Flash exploits. This tactical move is because of the increase in exploitation of outdated flash player browser plugins.

The users who tried to view Flash content in Safari with outdated flash player plugins saw a notification alert signalling the outdated and insecure state of the plugin, and the necessity to update it.

Clicking on the notification shows the following:

"The version of this plug-in on your computer does not include the latest security updates and is blocked. To continue using ‘Adobe Flash Player’ download an update from Adobe."

In order to view the flash content, you have to update to a new version of Adobe Flash Player, the advisory says. "If you need to use an older version of Flash Player, you can use Internet plug-in management in Safari to run the plug-in in unsafe mode for websites that you trust."

If you don't want to be a victim of a hack, we suggest you to update the Flash Player as soon as possible.
