This just in from ER –
I read these recent Adobe security bulletins for January 2017 that mention new Flash Player and Acrobat Reader security updates.
Adobe security bulletin APSB17-01 features new updates for Acrobat & Acrobat Reader:
Adobe security bulletin APSB17-02 features new updates for Flash Player 24
security/products/flash- player/apsb17-02.html and a bonus for Linux users, they can finally update to the new version 24 of flash since Adobe had been issuing flash player 11.2 security updates to linux users for several years.

No matter what you may have read, the latest version of Chrome doesn’t block Flash. But it does put another much-deserved nail in Flash’s coffin.

New Adobe Flash Player security updates have been posted in Adobe security bulletin APSB16-37:
Adobe is only offering new Flash Player v23 security updates and no longer offers any more Flash Player v18 “extended support release” updates.

In the “beating a dead horse” department, ER writes with this note:
Adobe has once again released a new set of Flash Player security updates, this time on Wed. October 26, 2016 in security bulletin APSB16-36:
Adobe security bulletin APSB16-36 also links to a future MS security bulletin that doesn’t exist yet for those using Windows 8.1 & Windows 10, maybe Thursday 10/27/2016 Microsoft may post it up, but so far the Adobe Flash Player v188.8.131.52 ActiveX security updates are not yet available for Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 (all editions).
And I also found out that the Win10 Flash Player security updates [like KB3194343] only apply to specific builds of Win10. So I had to download several different versions – one will specifically work for the “1607” version, the other for “1511” and another for the RTM “1507” version; one Flash Player patch for Win10 will NOT work for multiple builds of Win10, meaning a Win10 v1607 flash player patch will only work on the v1607 release and not the v1511 & v1507 releases.
Check out this MS Update Catalog search for KB3194343:
That’s one of the main pains with using the Update Catalog – Windows Update handles all the version searching for you.

Just in from EP:
New Adobe Flash Player security updates posted in security bulletin APSB16-32
and new Adobe Acrobat & Reader security updates posted in security bulletin APSB16-33
And the only way to speed up WU scans on Windows Vista SP2 is to install the KB3191203 security update, which contains the newest win32k.sys files, a short-term solution that will work from October 11 to November 7. KB3191203 has been mentioned here: http://wu.krelay.de/en/

Randy the Tech Professor has just posted his update list for September.
If you use Flash, Shockwave, iTunes, Google Chrome or Firefox, it’s worth a quick check to make sure you’re up to date.

I’m running far behind on some things.
EP sent this in last week…
Adobe has released new security updates for Flash Player, Shockwave Player and Acrobat Reader this July 2015.
Adobe Acrobat & Acrobat Reader patches posted in Adobe security bulletin APSB15-15:
Adobe Shockwave Player update posted in Adobe security bulletin APSB15-17:
Adobe Flash Player patches posted in Adobe security bulletin APSB15-18:
(this one is the second batch of Flash Player updates this July as they supersede
the ones found in Adobe security bulletin APSB15-16)
And I’m not upgrading to Windows 10 anytime this year as I’m uncertain of how
automatic updates will be delivered to Windows 10 users. I still like to download and install Windows Updates manually and to “pick & choose” which updates to install and which ones to skip.
