  • Updates from Adobe

    Posted on January 11th, 2017 at 21:54 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    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:
    https://helpx.adobe.com/security/products/acrobat/apsb17-01.html

    Adobe security bulletin APSB17-02 features new updates for Flash Player 24
    https://helpx.adobe.com/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 usersĀ  for several years.

  • Edge stores your browsing history on Microsoft’s servers

    Apparently if you want to get rid of your Edge browser history – the list of URLs you’ve accessed – you have to delete the browsing history in Edge, but then you ALSO have to delete the copies that are stored in Microsoft’s servers.

    I didn’t know that. Anybody else encounter it?

    IE only stores browsing history locally. Edge stores two copies, one on the machine, the other in the cloud.

    Details coming tomorrow.
