    Update for Vulnerabilities in Adobe Flash Player in IE

    I just went into Windows Update and the version for IE within Windows 8 is available already (at least where I am).

    Thanks DavidY. First time automatic updates got it before I did. I knew about Adobe patching it this a.m.. Got it earlier for Fifrefox. I figured Microsoft would put it on next week's Patch Tuesday. I did beat automatic updates getting it on my notebook, though.
