    New Flash Player Zero-Day in The Wild


    A new flaw in latest version of Flash to be patched next week.
    On my systems I use the free version of Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit to protect my systems.
    I guess we will see another updated from MS also.

  2. I need to install “Windows Update Standalone Installer”, but I am getting the message:- “The update is not applicable to your computer.”

    FWIW/FYI

    Although I'm neither a Windows 10 user (I'm on Win 7)nor have I Adobe Flash Player installed: I do use Firefox and have no problems whatsoever with playing online videos.

    In addition:

    Adobe Flash Player has lots of issues....

    AFAIK it got updated today to Version 28.0.0.161

    I assume that Microsoft will provide the respective update tomorrow or so.

    I've said so many times. GET rid of FLASH. It's a malware vector outdated piece of junk. Needless to say, I disable it.
