Patch Tuesday Update for Adobe and Microsoft Products

If you’re a tech enthusiast like us, then you already know what Patch Tuesday means. But for everyone out there still struggling with the term and the concept behind it, Patch Tuesday represents one Tuesday each month when various products get security updates, patches, fixes and much more. This Tuesday it’s time for Adobe and Microsoft Products to get a well-deserved refresh from their developers. So let’s see what Patch Tuesday brought new to them, shall we?

Microsoft Windows

In the case of Microsoft, this Patch Tuesday brought a lot of bug fixes and performance enhancements for the following programs:

  • Windows
  • Microsoft Office
  • Internet Explorer and Edge, the two Microsoft-developed browsers
  • NET
  • Framework
  • Exchange

But by far the most important and urgent update comes for Windows 10, 7 and 8.1. It tackles a dangerous vulnerability in the Windows Search Service that could have been potentially been exploited maliciously through the SMB file sharing service that Windows workstations and servers have built into them. However, it’s all been taken care of now.

Adobe Flash Player

Among the other Adobe products that get their security fixes and updates this Patch Tuesday we can naturally find Adobe Flash Player as well. Flash Player is the most notorious Adobe product as far as security issues go, and now the new Patch Tuesday fix managed to solve yet another threatening trio of flaws in the program.

However, while it’s obvious that Adobe are trying to keep the program safe, the truth is that Flash Player is too far gone for its own good. So, do yourself and your personal data a favor and increase your security by dropping Adobe Flash Player altogether. It’s dangerous, it performs poorly and it’s also outdated overall. Use HTML5 instead and enjoy a new layer of security in your browsing.
