MS17-005: Security Update for Flash Player 02/21/2017

Windows UpdateMicrosoft has issued Security Bulletin MS17-005, addressing a critical Security Update for Adobe Flash Player: February 21, 2017.


Adobe has released a security update KB4010250 on February 14, 2017 to fix vulnerabilities in Adobe Flash (see Adobe Patchday: Flash, Digital Editions (February 2017)), but Microsoft postponed February patchday to March 2017 (see What's happened with Microsoft's February patchday?).

Now Security Bulletin MS17-005 addresses a vulnerability in Adobe Flash shipped with Windows 8.1, Windows 10 and its server pendants:

This security update resolves vulnerabilities in Adobe Flash Player if Flash Player is installed on any supported edition of Windows Server 2016, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows 10, Windows 10 Version 1511, Windows 10 Version 1607, Windows 8.1, or Windows RT 8.1.

The update for Adobe Flash will be available via Windows Update (I haven't received it in Windows 10 V 1607 yet), and via Microsoft Update Catalog.
