The support team of Mozilla’s Firefox blocked all versions of Flash Player until Adobe releases a patch.
The announcement was made by the head of Firefox support Mark Schmidt, and it comes in as a response to the recent discovery of two critical zero-day flaws in Flash Player.
He made the announcement through a tweet he sent out.

Adobe has promised patches for the two flaws, but the patches are yet to arrive. Security experts fear that hackers are already working to integrate attacks for the bug into exploit kits.
Adobe has already published a patch for an earlier Flash bug, discovered last week in the Hacking Team’s files, which formed part of its law enforcement product Remote Control System or ‘Galileo’. That flaw was integrated into several exploit kits within hours of its discovery.
