Removal of Flash from Managed Computing systems

IMSS is currently working with Managed Computing customer groups to coordinate the removal of Adobe Flash Player from all Managed Computing systems. We are doing this because of numerous ongoing and severe security vulnerabilities from using Flash. While Flash was previously a popular plugin, many websites, such as YouTube and Pandora, have since moved away from Flash and transitioned to using HTML5 to handle music, video, and other media. In addition, modern browsers now natively handle HTML5 content without the need for third-party plugins such as Flash.
