Critical Adobe Flash Player Patches

February 22, 2017

Microsoft has cancelled their monthly patch release for February, and and will be releasing February's patches as part of the scheduled March 14 patch release. Adobe has released critical patches for Flash Player. Browsers using Flash must be patched,

How to patch Adobe Flash Player

To see your current version of Flash, and the most recent patched version of Flash for your browser, visit:

  https://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about

If you are using the Flash Player that is installed with Google Chrome, Internet Explorer on Windows 8 or 10, or Microsoft Edge for Windows 10, your version of Flash on that browser will be updated automatically. Note that patches for Flash on Microsoft browsers will not be released until Microsoft resumes their normal patch release cycle.

To upgrade Flash if you are not using one of the above browsers, download it from:

  https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer

Each browser that you use to view Flash content will need to be updated.

For additional details about these patches, see:

Please contact help@cs.cmu.edu, or call the SCS Help Desk (x8-4231) if you have questions or problems with applying these patches.
