Microsoft may have skipped February for patching its own systems, but the company will use Tuesday, February 21, 2017 to at least release an update to secure the Adobe Flash components in its Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge web browsers.
Years ago, Adobe piggy-backed on Microsoft own Patch Tuesday to help ease the burden of IT administrations when patching. But, with Microsoft skipping February 2017 for no publicly communicated reason, that has left Flash modern web browsers with exposed vulnerabilities. Instead of waiting until March as it has planned to do with its other security updates, Microsoft has notified paid support customers by email today that they should expect the Flash updates to deliver on Tuesday.
