Microsoft has reversed its decision to wait to patch critical vulnerabilities in Flash for Internet Explorer 10, and will release an update sooner than previously announced, according to ZDNet. The company's decision to integrate Flash directly into Internet Explorer 10 means that even though Adobe patched several vulnerabilities in the service last month, testers using the program remain at risk until Microsoft patches the software. Last week Microsoft said that an update would not be released until the public launch of Windows 8, but today Microsoft's director of trustworthy computing Yunsun Wee told ZDNet that the update will come "shortly," and another source said it may even be released "before the end of next week."
