Microsoft will push KB104577586 to remove Adobe Flash Player on Windows 10
Adobe Flash Player has now completely ended support, and Adobe will no longer provide any security updates to this player.
The lack of security updates means that the continued use of the user is no longer safe, especially when Adobe Flash Player contains numerous security vulnerabilities, it will become an attack channel.
Microsoft has released an optional update (KB4577586) at the end of last year. After the user actively installs the optional update, the Adobe Flash Player pre-installed in the system can be deleted.
But obviously, not all users know to install this optional update, so based on security considerations, Microsoft will automatically push and install this optional update this month.
In the latest announcement, Microsoft stated that it will push optional updates this month or next month. The optional updates will become regular updates so they can be downloaded and deployed automatically.
After the update is deployed, only the Adobe Flash Player pre-installed on the system will be deleted. Of course, users can no longer use the pre-installed version of the system after deletion.
Based on security considerations, we strongly recommend that all users uninstall Adobe Flash Player, and do not continue to use it in subsequent network life.
But if you really need to use Adobe Flash Player for various reasons, it is recommended to deploy a virtual machine. This can prevent potential security vulnerabilities from affecting your host’s security, and at the same time, it will not affect your work. In terms of browsers, the main browsers currently no longer support Adobe Flash Player.
