Latest Apple OS X update comprises of nearly half Adobe Flash fixes

Apple’s most recent OS X update has yielded some pretty interesting information – we’re talking about 40% of the fixes targeting nothing but Adobe Flash out of the 130 plus bugs corrected. Could this be one of the main reasons why Steve Jobs decided that Flash isn’t really suitable for mobile devices, since the platform does seem to be pretty vulnerable, making it a snap for hackers with devious intent to hijack your device? On the bright side, at least the known bugs have been fixed in the latest update. Having said that, we do hope that Adobe will do their part to make sure that future updates of Flash on all platforms will be a whole lot more secure, otherwise it might lead to hardware manufacturers shunning the platform and relying on other standards instead.
