Adobe, now 'married' to Microsoft, moves Flash updates to Patch Tuesday

Gregg Keizer | Nov. 8, 2012
Adobe on Tuesday announced that it will pair future security updates for its popular Flash Player with Microsoft's Patch Tuesday schedule.

IE10 on Windows 7, which Microsoft has pledged to release as a preview by mid-November, will not include an integrated version of Flash, but will rely on the traditional plug-in. Still, it will, like other browsers, receive future updates on Patch Tuesday.

Adobe also said that it would, if necessary, issue emergency updates outside Microsoft's schedule to quash "zero-day" bugs.

Windows 8 and Windows RT users can obtain today's Flash update for IE10 via the Windows Update service, while others can either download the revised plug-in from Adobe's website or use the Flash updating tool.
