    We'll have to wait and see what MS and Adobe do to fix this lapse. It could be 2 or 3 weeks between the issue of Flash updates and the WU to issue these fixes. I was wondering about this myself. Waiting until Oct. 26th for MS to issue changes to this procedure does seem dangerous.

    The article from ZDNet discusses a couple work arounds until MS and Adobe get their act together.

    In addition to ActiveX filtering, if you click More Information under Shockwave Flash Object and then Remove all sites, you will be prompted to allow the first request from any site.

    After WU of Flash, installed version is 11.3.374.7

    FileHippo.com Update Checker shows Flash (For IE) version S.B. 11.4.402.278

    Not sure why. I do not know what the Flash version was before this WU.

    11.4 was at the time in Beta. Now Windows 8/IE 10 is still using Flash Player 11.3.375, which is reasonably secure. Chrome for Windows 8 is up to Flash Player 11.4 (Pepper Flash). Guess which browser I'm using in Win 8!

    11.4 had been non-Beta since 8/21/2012, a month before the first update for IE10.

    All the more reason to use Chrome for most Windows 8 web browsing. Microsoft really needs to get on track about this.
