Microsoft and Adobe Releases Critical Security Fixes

March 15, 2017 1:47 pm | Updated 1 year ago.

Microsoft and Adobe has released their latest security updates for their products recently. Microsoft delayed their security patch last month but now have came up with a bundle of updates to fix the flaws in Windows and their other software’s. On the other hand, Adobe also came up with at least seven security updates for their Flash Player software.

Microsoft this time released patches for at least five critical bugs in the Windows file-sharing services. One of the other critical patches (MS17-013) that Microsoft has released will cover a bunch of vulnerabilities in the way Windows controls certain image files.

The most recent versions of Flash released by Adobe will be available on the Flash home page and users are thus suggested to update them for better experience. For those who uses Windows platform and browses the Web with applications other than the Internet Explorer like the Firefox, Opera, Chrome may need to apply the security patches twice, i.e. once with the Internet Explorer and again with their alternative browsers.
