Microsoft to release Adobe Flash player updates, other security updates still delayed until March

Arif Bacchus

Just last week, Microsoft announced that they would be delaying February’s Patch Tuesday’s updates due to a “last minute issue.” The company then shortly followed up a few days later and announced that the regularly scheduled patches would instead come on March 14th. Now, according to BetaNews, Microsoft has a slight change of plans and has decided to release Adobe Flash player updates, while still holding other security updates until March.

Though the details on the Flash Players Updates are scarce, Microsoft reportedly emailed some customers and told them to expect patches soon. The security updates are set to arrive today and come as Google recently revealed a unpatched Windows bug that Microsoft failed to patch in time. Here is the reported email which some Microsoft customers received:

Microsoft is planning to release security updates for Adobe Flash Player. These updates will be offered to the following operating systems: Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows RT 8.1, Windows 10, and Windows Server 2016. No other security updates are scheduled for release until the next scheduled monthly update release on March 14, 2017.
