According to Adobe, Microsoft’s upcoming OS will be susceptible to threats because of an unfixed bug on the Adobe Flash Player which is integrated in the Internet Explorer 10.
This bug was already addressed by Adobe with an update they released last August. However, the current version of Flash Player found in the IE10 of Windows 8 will not have this fix out of the box. According to Microsoft they’ll only apply the fix once the OS reaches the GA (General Availability) phase which will happen when the software starts retailing on October 26.
Although the new OS will not have the fix when it comes available, the software giant reassures their consumer that it will not take long for them long before they release a Windows Update containing the patch. This statement was backed up by a statement given by an Adobe representative in their support forum.
We hope that everything goes according to plan because if not, this hole in the security may pose a serious threat especially considering that some of these vulnerabilities ranked highest on Adobe’s threat watchlist.
