Windows 10 Gets a Quick Update of Adobe Flash Player

Surprisingly, we recently found out that Microsoft is currently releasing an unscheduled update they made for Windows 10. From what it seems, the reason for this unexpected update is the fact that they have a critical security issue. The problem was discovered this week and it refers to a vulnerability related to the Adobe Flash Player.

What’s the Danger?

According to the official support page for Adobe, the company saw that there were several security bugs existent in Flash. The danger here was the fact that they could have actually allowed an attacker to control the affected system. In fact, there was even a report showing that one of the bugs had already been exploited.

How to Protect My Machine?

Since Windows 10 is using the Adobe Flash Player by default in the Microsoft Edge web browser, which is the native one, Microsoft decided to release an update on its own. The developers did the same with the Internet Explorer 11 in the Windows 8.1 OS, which obviously also includes Flash.

If you have a machine that does not fall into these categories, then you should know that you have to download the latest update manually. If you download the latest version of the Flash Player, you will also receive the most recent security updates, so that you can keep your machine protected.

However, some users reported encountering an error when trying to update. Microsoft did not address this issue just yet, but let’s hope they will offer a valid solution to people who were not able to install the update when they tried.

If you think your machine should have downloaded the update automatically and it didn’t, you can always check the updates or the download logs, and you will see there if you are indeed using the latest version or not.
