Over the past two years, the web technology designed by Adobe and called Flash has seen its empire on the web slowly crumble. The main problem that he has faced a large number of times is related to security, a security that has always been compromised by the sloppiness of the company. But in addition, the development and standardization of HTML 5 technology has also contributed to the deterioration of this technology, because it requires much less requirements than Flash technology. But even though is disabled in most browsers, they continue to offer support, albeit indirectly.
The guys from Redmond have released a critical update for Adobe Flash Player, an update that will allow patching different new and dangerous vulnerabilities detected, hence the company could not wait a few more days to launch it together with the monthly update. In the official statement we can see how this new update solves all issues with this technology in Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows RT 8.1, Windows 10, and Windows Server 2016. It is recommended to install this update if you continue to use this technology if you want to avoid security problems on your device.
If, on the other hand, you have forgotten about this technology for a long time and you have completely disabled it both in your browsers and in the operating system, you should not worry, since as long as you do not use it, security issues you may have will not affect you. Even so, it is always good and advisable to install each and every one of the updates that Microsoft releases to the market to improve the security and stability of all the operating systems that are currently available in the market with official support.
