Has the windows update to fix this security hole in the version of flash player bundled into IE yet been released?
Also what about updates to chrome to fix this flaw in the version of flash player bundled within chrome?

Which version of IE has flash bundled. I know that Chrome will update to the latest version automatically. Chrome on my Windows 7 computer has already been updated. You can force an update of Chrome by going to Settings about Chrome.  To check what version of flash you have on Chrome type 

 

chrome://plugins 

 

in the address bar.

Starting on Windows 8 and Internet Explorer 10, Adobe Flash Player is bundled in Internet Explorer and updated automatically by Microsoft.

Yes...Internet Explorer 10 in Windows 8 includes a bundled, integrated version of Adobe Flash. Microsoft has taken responsibility for releasing updates to the integrated plugin via Windows Update as needed so it may not always be in a timely manner.

Internet Explorer 10’s bundled Flash leaves users exploitable
