    Old, vulnerable flash in builds 16193 and 16199


    Flash version in last two builds is an old version 25.0.0.127, that has critical vulnerabilities.

    I don't find a way to update it to the latest version, since Windows Update manage that. This is just version for Edge (and Internet explorer) and is not needed often, but is enabled by default. Disable it in Edge settings (advance - in the bottom)

    Not too many do!

    I always install Beta Flash plug-ins; stable enough, never a reported vulnerability.

    Have to ask, since I didn't find straight answer elsewhere... How do we manually update Flash for Edge?

    Can't! Have to wait for Windows Update to hand it down!
