    Security Advisory 2755801 addresses Adobe Flash Player issues - MSRC - Site Home - TechNet Blogs:
    http://blogs.technet.com/b/msrc/arc...5801-addresses-adobe-flash-player-issues.aspx

    Today we released Security Advisory 2755801
    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/security/advisory/2755801
    that
    addresses vulnerabilities in Adobe Flash Player in Internet Explorer 10
    on Windows 8. The majority of customers have automatic updates enabled
    and will not need to take any action because protections will be
    downloaded and installed automatically. Customers who do not use
    automatic updates should apply the guidance in the advisory immediately
    using update management software, or by checking the Microsoft Update
    service, to help ensure protection.

    We recognize there has been some discussion about our update process as
    it relates to Adobe Flash Player. Microsoft is committed to taking the
    appropriate actions to help protect our customers and we are working
    closely with Adobe to deliver quality protections that are aligned with
    Adobe’s update process.

    With respect to Adobe Flash Player in Internet Explorer 10, customers
    can expect the following:

    * On a quarterly basis when Adobe normally issues Flash Player
    updates, we will coordinate on disclosure and release timing.
    * When the threat landscape requires action outside of Adobe’s normal
    update cadence, we will also work to align our release schedules.
    For example, this may mean that in some cases we will issue updates
    outside of our regular monthly security bulletin release.

    As always, we recommend customers visit the Advisory for more
    information and make sure the update is deployed as soon as possible to
    help ensure that they are protected.
