Adobe has had a lot of security problems with its Flash, a high dependence on it on the Internet has forced users to have it installed on their computers in order to see the content that depends on this browser plugin. However, the errors committed in its development have generated a large number of security holes that could be exploited to compromise Flash machines, bringing the end of Flash closer to the immediate future.
Oracle, for its part, bought Sun Microsystems and is therefore the current owner of the Java plugin, another of the dominant ones on the Internet. But HTML5 has brought hope and perhaps both Java and Flash are no longer needed. In fact, Oracle has announced that in April the Java plugin will stop updating, putting an end to this plugin for browsers, closing a cycle that, like Adobe with Flash, has not been a bed of roses.
Java has also been, like Flash, one of the main targets of attack, compromising the safety of the equipment. The popularity of Java has made computer attackers see it as a very juicy target, causing new vulnerabilities and problems to be uncovered for Oracle in this case, I insist, an almost identical path to Adobe with Flash, both systems being dominant on the Internet , but that there are already some great ones who have rejected them.
Now with HTML5, developers are ditching Java and Flash-based technologyIn addition, the numerous security problems of these have not helped developers to remain encouraged to use these technologies. Now, all those websites that are based on this technology, like many of the ministry to say some important that uses Java for signing documentation, etc., should find an alternative to continue working.
