Microsoft Edge runs flash on Facebook without your permission
Microsoft’s web browser, Microsoft Edge, has been found to be running Flash on Facebook and many other websites without requesting permission from the user, despite Flash not supposedly being able to run without permission, for privacy and security reasons.
The default Flash whitelist in Edge (https://t.co/JxStUIxByE) really surprised me. So many sites for which I'm completely baffled as to why they're there. Like a site of a hairdresser in Spain(https://t.co/50xdJvzksA)?! I wonder how the list was formed. And if MSRC knew about it.
