    Microsoft issues IE 10 Flash flaw fix for Windows 8


    September 22, The Register – (International) Microsoft issues IE 10 Flash flaw fix for Windows 8. Soon after an update that fixed the recent zero-day flaw discovered in Internet Explorer (IE) versions 7, 8, and 9, Microsoft released a separate patch that solves issues related to the Adobe Flash Player component of IE 10. The current Flash vulnerabilities only affect IE 10 running on Windows 8 and Windows 2012 server, meaning most Windows users are not vulnerable. However, although Microsoft’s latest operating systems have yet to ship to retail customers, they are already available to volume licensees and subscribers to Microsoft’s MSDN and TechNet programs.

    After the update, especially today, the desktop version of IE10 is constantly locking up for me on pages with lots of Flash ads.

    It's probably just me, but it is annoying. This forum works just fine though!

    Yeah, I might try Firefox or one of the derivatives if this keeps up!

    I love waterfox, but can't get it to run correctly. I select it as my default, but every time i re-launch it, it ask to be set as default again. I ran it as admin and it still does the same thing. I also get a UI error when launching from the taskbar. How did you get it to work?

    Thanks,
    Don
