If you have Adobe Flash Player on your computer, you may be a favorite target for malicious hackers.
Why? The reasons are as follows:
First of all, Adobe Flash Player has a huge user base. Many users in order to get online media content based on Flash (such as video), beginning with Flash Player, and the malicious hackers can use to attack large user groups.
Second, the Flash Player on your computer has probably not been updated for a long time. Many users may not be able to configure the update properly, or choose to ignore it when you receive an update. Malicious hackers prefer software with a large user base, but prefer software that has a huge customer base and is in disrepair.
If you always update 0day to prevent Flash from being aware of a known vulnerability, then a hacker without a tool is not a big threat to you.
Once again, hackers have discovered a very long history of Flash vulnerabilities at critical levels. They will attack, embed, use tools, and then provide for anyone. Flash does not open source, and software ownership is controlled by Adobe, which has been plagued by software vulnerabilities and defects for years. The question of why Flash always lies on the gun is often discussed, but it is still going on.
With so much to say, the point is that when Adobe releases a new patch for Flash Player, users are better able to sit up and pay attention to it.

If you choose the latter, the update may not happen immediately, so instead of waiting, update it manually.
For friends using Google, Chrome, and Microsoft Edge browsers, things might get easier, because Flash should also be updated to the latest version when browsers upgrade.
