While Microsoft did not send out its February 2017 Patch Tuesday and postponed the release of those patches for March, there are vulnerabilities the software giant says need fixing right now.

So, this past Tuesday, Microsoft pushed out critical security updates for Adobe Flash Player in Internet Explorer 10, 11 and Microsoft Edge, for Windows 8.1, RT 8.1, 10, and Windows Server 2012, 2012 R2, and 2016.

The fixes take care of 13 holes, which can all lead to remote code execution. Adobe issued patches for them earlier this month.
