Today, Microsoft issued Microsoft Security Bulletin MS16-083, which is recommended for anyone running Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows RT 8.1, and Windows 10. And why must anyone running  Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows RT 8.1, and Windows 10 run a security update? The answer is in the name of the update: Security Update for Adobe Flash Player (3167685).

There are workarounds to avoid exposing oneself to Flash Player vulnerabilities. The two global ones that will eliminate the risk are: not using Internet Explorer, and disabling Adobe Flash Player on your computer.
