Microsoft announced the availability of a new security update for Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 users, as the company has worked together with Adobe to fix flaws that could affect Internet Explorer 10 and 11.
Just like it’s the case of all the other updates released on Patch Tuesday, they are automatically delivered to all computers via Windows Update, so no user input is required.
“This update addresses the vulnerabilities in Adobe Flash Player by updating the affected Adobe Flash binaries contained within Internet Explorer 10 and Internet Explorer 11. Most customers have automatic updating enabled and will not need to take any action because this update will be downloaded and installed automatically,” Microsoft explained.
The new Flash Player is also available as a stand-alone version for those who prefer to keep Windows Update turned off, so download build number 11.9.900.152 if you’d like to install it manually.
