Adobe patches Flash - again

Adobe just released some new security-related patches for their Flash Player.

My question here is not “why again”, because I expected that. We all expected that. The real question is - who the hell still uses flash? And why are guides like “This is how you secure your flash installation now” so popular? (The expression “security hole” is always particularly funny; that’s obviously no hole here, because a hole clearly has an edge ;) )

The times when you needed Flash for watching YouTube videos are gone (they support HTML5 since, uh…) and they even set HTML5 as default in early 2015. So please stop writing tutorials on how to secure flash and start writing tutorials on how to use other technologies. Thanks.
