By convention, Adobe releases the Flash Player security update program every second weeks, and so does itMicrosoftAnd other large software companies release their software security updates on the day. Adobe has decided to integrate its security deployment into Microsoft products, because Flash Player has been bundled with Windows as part of Internet, Explorer, and Edge browsers.

Adobe launched a new version of Flash Player this month, but it does not include any security updates. Instead, there are only a few bug fixes and improvements, and Adobe says users should still install the new version of Flash Player as soon as possible.

Adobe plans to stop updating Flash Player by the end of 2020, so some people think that lower security patch speeds show that Adobe will shift its focus to other products. Although there are no official statements in this regard, such a strategy can be a risky decision that ultimately affects the security of users, especially if Adobe reduces the time it takes to find vulnerabilities.
