Microsoft announced plans last week to block Flash, Shockwave, and Silverlight content from activating in Office 365.
The block will only apply to Office 365 subscription clients, but not to Office 2016, Office 2013, or Office 2010 distributions, the company said.
This is a full-on block, and not just Microsoft disabling problematic controls with the option to click on a button and view its content. The block means that Office 365 will prevent Flash, Shockwave, or Silverlight content from playing inside Office documents altogether.
I am glad flash is such a security issue. There is reason Apple blocked it on the first iPad.
