Today we released an update that addresses vulnerabilities in Adobe Flash Player in Internet Explorer 10 on Windows 8. The details of the vulnerabilities are documented in Adobe security bulletin APSB13-08. The majority of customers have automatic updates enabled and will not need to take any action because the update will be downloaded and installed automatically. For those manually updating, we encourage you to read the advisory and apply this update as quickly as possible.

    Is the Win7 version affected by this?

    Will you release other performance/stability interim patches for IE10 down the road, such as something to fix the memory leak problem? Or will we have to wait 1-2 years again for a CHANCE for it to be fixed with IE11?

    HONG KONG YAhoo murderer

    The computer technology that they developed can really kill people for nothing..It is very difficult for me to convience everybody with this kind of story. Beleive me, once u are chosen than only u understand better. It is very hard to explain but I make it simple as I can. When they started to control u as if like someone is inside u.

    The virus that they developed also can make cancer cells growth very fast and kill cancer patient so much earlier than what they should go..esp people who can challenged their skills…hong kong was being attacked by SARS and H1N1 that was actually due to virus that they developed..They also attacked computer genious especially those who take drugs as part of their habbit..bad habbit but it is unfair for them in this case..

    Microsoft people are murderer and hackers…trying to control people through their software technology…they are developing a kind of virus to kill human being spread through the computer screen rays and electric ion and eventually combined with electromagnetic to become very stable in the air to kill people.

    • Hi everybody….Just want to share something about Malaysian ISA with u guys out there..As we all know, ISA acting as preventive measure for any case or situation that can lead to destroy living harmony in our beloved country..Persatuan Peguam Malaysia really fight to terminate use of this act on the basis of freedom of speech or whatever freedom they like to have. Probably they don't have any

    I urged Malaysian Policemen to pay more attention on Internet culprits as they can do something bad to our country through the software and computer technology. They really can control people's mind through it and eventually creates a bad image of Malaysian police too.

    Microsoft murderer YAHUDI 用科技玩人民和杀死明福,要玩Malaysia,ISA和警察,网上官员用科技玩人民和用声音,弄神弄鬼。

    Windows 7 and older is affected if you have installed Flash, but you should obtain the update from Adobe since Flash is only integrated on Windows 8.

  5. Mike Dimmick says:

    @Arieta: Do you have a test case for your 'memory leak problem'? That is, can you point to a page that experiences what you consider to be a memory leak? Have you reduced that page to the minimum markup and script that still reproduces the problem? Engineers cannot fix problems that they cannot reproduce. They have a limited amount of time to fix bugs and if it's not possible to reproduce the bug easily, it's difficult to assess how serious the problem is and the priority for first reproducing, then fixing, the bug.

    As Internet Explorer 10 has now released, any bugs should be reported through Product Support Services. Go to for details. Note that if you got your copy of Windows preinstalled on your computer, you'll have to get support from the computer manufacturer rather than from Microsoft. I don't think this is a sensible approach either, but that is the way that the IE team have chosen to operate, so that's what you'll have to do.

    I am trying to download adobe flash player.  It doesn't let me.  Why?

  11. IE9 user but prefering IE8 UI says:

    I try use this way to inform you about two Adobe big problems in conjunction with IE9.

    A) When IE9 had ActiveX filtering enabled… this filtering did not work with embeded flash video – video was automaticely played via Flash Player ActiveX. This error was probably (after more then one year) in silence repaired, but please test noted situation.

    B) Adobe SSL webs have mechanismus to redirect users from secured (SSL) pages to unsecured. Works, with small restriction, also when JS is disabled. The dialog "Inform when security is changing" is ignored and automatical redirection occure.
