Microsoft fixes 50 flaws for Windows, Adobe, Spectre, and more

Microsoft packed a lot into its Patch Tuesday updates this week, providing 50 fixes for vulnerabilities covering everything from the Windows OS, Internet Explorer, and Microsoft Office to Microsoft Edge and ChakraCore JavaScript. The full list of patches includes fixes for eight recently-discovered Spectre flaws, which allow for Speculative Store Bypass, a trick thieves can use to steal info through websites. Also included in the massive patch is a Flash Player update that fixes an Adobe zero-day vulnerability patched out-of-band last week, as well as three other Adobe bugs.
