Adobe Flash EOL Nightmares

On December 31, 2020 Adobe Flash reached its official End Of Life (EOL) and on January 12, 2021 Adobe disabled Flash from running. Despite months of warnings and notices, some users did not migrate away from Flash in time and have been forced into some questionable decision making in order to keep critical services running. The South African Revenue Service decided to launch their own browser that still runs Flash rather than migrate their form based systems that were built in flash. A more critical issue took place in Northern China where the railroad system in Dalian was forced to shutdown after staff were unable to create train schedules and shunting plans after flash was deactivated. That's some breaking change! They fixed the issue by installing a pirated version of Flash!
