Enough is enough: It's time to flush Flash back to where it came from – Hell

Fazal Majid

I have always disabled Flash entirely on my primary locked-down browser (Chrome), but the last incident made me reach my tipping point. My plan is to remove Flash entirely from my Mac, and leave it in a VirtualBox VM ghetto for when I absolutely need it. That way I won't have to restart all my browsers each time there is a security update, and the damage from compromise is contained.

The flaw in this plan is that Chrome bundles Flash, so there would still be the taint of Flash on the main OS X.
