According to "computerworld", microsoft on Friday updated Flash on Windows 8 to protect IE10 users from attacks that may have started months ago.
More than a week before, Microsoft had backed away from an earlier position that held it would not patch Flash until late October. Instead, the company promised to update the media player "shortly."
Microsoft, not Adobe, is responsible for patching Flash Player in Windows 8 because the company mimicked Google's Chrome by building the software into IE10, the new operating system's browser. Microsoft announced that move in late May, when its top IE executive, Dean Hachamovitch, said, "By updating Flash through Windows Update, like IE, we make security more convenient for customers."
Friday's Flash update will be offered to Windows 8 RTM, and to the final public beta, Windows 8 Release Preview. That sneak peak, which users downloaded free of charge, does not expire until Jan. 31, 2013.
Computerworld confirmed that the update boosted IE10's Flash Player to version 11.3.374.7 on Windows 8 RTM. On Friday, Adobe confirmed that that edition contained the patches for the eight vulnerabilities it patched Aug. 14 and Aug. 21.
More information on the Flash Update to IE10 and Windows 8 can be found in Microsoft's security advisory.
Windows 8 users can obtain the Flash update via the Windows Update service, as well as through the enterprise-grade WSUS (Windows Server Update Services).
