  • New security bulletin MS16-083 / KB 3167685 – Adobe Flash Player

    Posted on June 16th, 2016 at 13:54 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    Microsoft just released a patch for Win 8.1 and 10 systems that covers all of the security patches in Adobe’s ASPB16-18, a mammoth list.

    MS16-083 / KB 3167685 should be arriving on a computer near you.

    It’ll be interesting to see if the Win10 version rolls out to Win10 machines,  not as part of a cumulative update. I just now got it on my Win10 machines. It installs separately, doesn’t require a reboot, and even upon reboot it doesn’t change the Win10 build number (currently version 1511 build 10586.420.)

    Of course, I’ve been railing against Flash for a decade. Don’t use it, disable it everywhere. If you see a site that needs Flash, write a Nastygram to the web folks.
