Microsoft has released a new Windows Update called KB3124263 for Windows 10 PCs, on Patch Tuesday.
The update comprises of a few security bulletins.
There are four of them, to be precise: MS16-001, MS16-005, MS16-007 and MS16-008. Here is a brief description of those.
MS16-001 patches multiple security vulnerabilities in Internet Explorer. This includes a fix for one severe issue, which could have allowed remote code execution, when the user visited a malicious web page using the browser.
MS 16-005 is also similar to the above one, since it involves a fix for a bug which may have potentially allowed arbitrary attacks, but in Windows Kernel-Mode [...]
KB3132372 Windows Update won’t be forgotten by Windows 10 users, at least not in the near future.
This is because the patch, which was originally intended to fix security issues in Adobe Flash Player for Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer, instead saw itself become a thorn for many a user.

And when I say ask, I meant nag (it’s Microsoft we’re talking about). Microsoft has announced that it will [...]
Windows Update KB3132372, was released by Microsoft, about three days ago for Windows 10 computers, running n the latest build of the OS.
The update was meant to patch the recently reported critical vulnerabilities, in the infamous Adobe Flash Player plugin, which the Redmond company ships with Internet Explorer 11 and Microsoft Edge.
Microsoft did say that a few apps may crash after installing the update. This statement appears to be more of a casual warning, than it states the actual side-effect.
