windows – Is flash less secure now that it is End of Life?

As of this month, the Flash player has been disabled from all mainstream browsers. However, several platforms are still offering ways to use Flash content, most notably the games hosted on said platforms.

My question now is:


  • The method of access may matter, let us assume one uses the latest version of their recommended player, not an old version of a regular browser.
  • There must be multiple threat vectors, if the platform or content supplier has bad intent it is presumably completely insecure, but perhaps this was already the case before this month as well.
  • It might or might not help if one had a way to not access any new content, but only content that was already created and accessed before this month.
