Microsoft Patch Tuesday, or is that “Patch Next Tuesday”? – Flash Player RCE patched today, (Tue, Feb 21st)

Microsoft released the patch for MS017-005 today, to patch a remote code execution vulnerability in Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows RT 8.1, Windows 10, and Windows Server 2016.  The MS Bulletin is posted here: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/security/MS17-005, but is not yet posted on the main feed (https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/security/bulletins.aspx)


The matching Adobe technote is APSB17-04, found here: https://helpx.adobe.com/security/products/flash-player/apsb17-04.html


This is a remote code execution issue, so it’s a definite “PATCH NOW” issue.


** Update: the Microsoft feed has caught up now with the patch release, https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/security/bulletins.aspx is now correct.
