Just a week after delaying its usual monthly Patch Tuesday updates for February, Microsoft has issued a critical Adobe Flash Player fix for Windows.
Rated critical Windows 8.1, Windows RT 8.1, Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016, the update includes patches released by Adobe last week. However, because Flash Player is included with Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge, any fix from Adobe has to be distributed from Microsoft via Windows Update to cover its browsers. According to the patch notes, this patch fixes security issues that could allow remote code execution by an attacker.
Usually these types updates would arrive on the second Tuesday of the month, otherwise known as Patch Tuesday. However, in an unusual move, Microsoft delayed the monthly batch of updates over a "last minute issue." Microsoft latest clarified that this month's updates would arrive with next month's planned Patch Tuesday updates on March 14.
