“This security update resolves vulnerabilities in Adobe Flash Player that is installed on any supported edition of Windows operating system,” Microsoft said on the support page. It’s worth noting that Microsoft recommends users to install any language packs before you install this update, if you install a language after updating your system, the patch won’t work and as a result, you must reinstall this update.
Adobe will retire the Flash Player by end of 2020 as the new open standards are better than the former due to a number of reasons. “As open standards like HTML5, WebGL and web assembly have matured over the past several years, most now provide many of the capabilities and functionalities that plugins pioneered and have become a viable alternative for content on the web,” Adobe said.
