Priority Level: 
High
9 November 2016

Microsoft and Adobe have issued advisories regarding updates to address vulnerabilities in their widely used products.

You are advised to review the security bulletin from Microsoft and the bulletins about Adobe Flash Player and Adobe Connect, and apply the relevant updates.

Updates address vulnerabilities in computer systems that remote attackers can otherwise use to gain access to systems or information (such as online banking details).

A vulnerability is a weakness that can leave a computer and its systems open to attack. Attacks can be carried out a number of ways, including through malicious software (malware) such as viruses and spyware that can monitor a users' activity on a computer and stop systems operating properly.
