Windows 7: Microsoft Security Bulletin Summary for November 8th 2016

Hi Anak. I just read but apparently where it mentions the versions of Windows affected do not name version 7 :

"This security update resolves vulnerabilities in Adobe Flash Player when installed on all supported editions of Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows RT 8.1, Windows 10, and Windows Server 2016".

If I understand correctly, for users of those versions of Windows will get the flash patches through WU. If so, will users from version 7 continue to update flash from the get.adobe page as always? Or I did not understand it well :/

You noticed that to, eh?
It's because 7 can't run the browsers that have flash integrated into them like 8.1 or 10 can run, The IE11 version for 7 is different than the IE11/Edge browsers for 8.1 and/or 10, we can run IE11 on 7, but flash has to be updated manually, or thru a third-party updating program like Secunia or Heimdal.

I thought you understood it well; Windows update will read your machines updates list and if it sees your machine is 7withIE11 it won't add the flash update, if it sees 8.1 or 10 it will add the flash update.
If you're used to getting it through get.adobe, stay with what you're used to or use one of the 3rdparty updaters referenced above, they will help your sanity when doing routine maintenance.
