    Certainly. But the fact remains that a tremendous amount of people from all over the world still use Flash to work with certain computer programs and even though things have now changed to HTML5, Flash will undoubtedly be hard to get rid of altogether according to many who want a chance to retain it for future use. And that might not be a bad thing if HTML5 ends up not working out to full expectations.... at least there would be something there to fall back on.

    More Android Phones Coming with Preinstalled Malware
    By Bogdan Popa

    http://news.softpedia.com/news/more-...e-517239.shtml

    "Security company Dr. Web has discovered new malware that comes pre-installed on a number of Android devices, warning that cybercriminals can use the infection to download and install additional payloads on compromised smartphones."
    “Android.Triada.231 can infiltrate various Trojan modules in processes of any application and affect its operation. For example, virus writers can make Trojan to download and run malicious plugins for stealing confidential information from bank applications, cyberespionage modules and for intercepting of correspondence from social media clients and messengers, etc,” Dr. Web explains."

    Exclamation New Virus Called “Invisible Man” Going After Android Users

    Flash Users With Android Beware and Read On!

    New Virus Called “Invisible Man” Going After Android Users
    By Bogdan Popa

    http://news.softpedia.com/news/new-v...s-517269.shtml

    "Security researchers warn that a new form of malware is targeting Android devices, posing as a Flash update that needs to be installed as soon as possible."
    "It goes without saying that the easiest way to protect against this new malware is to never install bogus Flash Player updates. And if you do install them by mistake, not granting access to critical parts of the operating system is the easiest way to remain secure."

    Exclamation WikiLeaks: CIA Using Windows Hack to Block Surveillance Cameras, Protect Agents

    How ironic! WikiLeaks that is a Trump favorite has some very revealing information about one of his agencies! Wonder how he feels about that?

    WikiLeaks: CIA Using Windows Hack to Block Surveillance Cameras, Protect Agents

    By Bogdan Popa

    "WikiLeaks has revealed a new set of tools allegedly used by the CIA in its cyber-operations, this time specifically aimed at shutting down surveillance cameras in order to allow its agents perform a series of missions without being caught on video."
    "Called Dumbo, this set of tools can not only block cameras, microphones, and surveillance software, but it can also scan for audio and video recordings, corrupting the files in a way that does not allow them to be recovered."

    It's about 10x bigger than you are expressing...

    For example; let's say the DHS wanted to hack into the election system... They could make the connection and use those tools to convert English to say, Russian. Down to simulating the key codes from the keyboard to appear as if the keyboard was Russian. Then with proxy tools, a few hops away would make the origin of the source to appear Russian...

    Then, if the plan doesn't work, then you have the evidence to claim that Russia hacked the election.

    Just as a hypothetical example.

    Exclamation Microsoft and Apple Agree on One Thing: Traditional Smartphones Are Dead

    NEWS! Say buh-bye to the Smartphones!

    Microsoft and Apple Agree on One Thing: Traditional Smartphones Are Dead

    http://news.softpedia.com/news/micro...d-517303.shtml
    By Bogdan Popa

    "But while the two companies are adopting different directions for their mobile push, both agree on one thing: the traditional smartphone as we know it is dead already and focusing on other “mobile” approaches seems to become more of a priority."
    "Apple and Microsoft are heading towards a strategy that puts the focus on smartglasses, and the two technology giants are investing billions of dollars in augmented reality (AR) projects that could once replace smartphones altogether."

    I recently heard that some business was already implanting the chip on some of their employees but under their skin! That is actually tragic, imho, as that is said to be a major part of the New World Order. So yes, talk about creepy!
