Flash-based malvertising has run amok lately. So it was only a matter to time before something like this was announced:
“Beginning September 1, 2015, Amazon no longer accepts Flash ads on Amazon.com, AAP, and various IAB standard placements across owned and operated domains.”
Amazon is doing more than banning Flash. For example…
This is a very good move on Amazon’s part and hopefully other companies will follow suit sooner than later. Flash-based ads are now an all-too-common security risk. Everybody will be better off without them.
