In brief: Microsoft updates Internet Explorer 10 to address vulnerabilities in Adobe Flash Player

(LiveHacking.Com) – Adobe has released a new version of its ubiquitous Flash Player to address vulnerabilities that could cause a crash and potentially be exploited by an attacker to infect a PC with malware. As a result Microsoft has issued a patch to IE10 to update the browser’s built-in version of Flash Player.

Microsoft has revised Security Advisory 2755801 to reflect the changes. The new version of IE is available for all supported editions of Windows 8, Windows Server 2012, and Windows RT. For more information about the update, including download links, see Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 2770041

“We remain committed to taking the appropriate actions to help protect customers and will continue to work closely with Adobe to deliver quality protections that are aligned with Adobe’s update process,” said Dave Forstrom, Director, Microsoft Trustworthy Computing.
