Press Release: End of Adobe Flash and Impact on Security Systems
Posted on Jan 07, 2021 by Chris Bracken
Adobe announced that as of January 2021 they will stop supporting Flash Player, and after January 12th, 2021, they will begin to block content from running on Flash Player. With this development comes a possibility that certain software programs will be affected.
Some software programs that could potentially be affected include:
Card Access Software
CCTV NVRs and client software
Some DDC Controls system interfaces
Luckily, Flash Player was typically only used for user interface purposes. This means that even if Flash Player is used in your program, your software will still run your physical systems, and only the interface will be impacted. If Flash Player was used in your system, you will receive an error while attempting to open a function on the interface, such as graphics or video.
