*<< Out-of-Band Microsoft Security Updates & Adobe Flash Player Security 
Updates >>*

Microsoft has released an out-of-band (OOB) security update for Adobe 
Flash Player in Internet Explorer on all supported Windows platforms 
(8.1, 8, Server 2012 & R2). This update addresses the vulnerabilities in 
Adobe Flash Player by updating the affected Adobe Flash libraries 
contained within Internet Explorer 10 and Internet Explorer 11.

Adobe has also released emergency security updates for Adobe Flash 
Player for Windows, Macintosh, and Linux. These updates address 
vulnerabilities that could potentially allow an attacker to take control 
of the affected system. An exploit for CVE-2014-0515 exists in the wild, 
and Adobe recommends users update their product installations to the 
latest versions ASAP.

**ETS has deployed the third-party Adobe Flash Player patches as well as 
the OOB Microsoft security updates with a _mandatory installation 
deadline on Tuesday, April 29, 2014 at 8:00PM_. These updates have been 
made available starting at 1:00PM today. The third-party Adobe Flash 
Player patches will force the browser(s) (Internet Explorer & Firefox)
