There are two way to download the latest Adobe Flash Player update brought by Patch Tuesday:

  • Download it via Windows Update

You can install the update automatically through Windows Update provided that you turn on automatic updating. You can also manually scan for updates. Go to Settings > Update & Security > click on the ‘Check for updates’ button.

  • Use Microsoft’s Update Catalog

If you don’t want to download other updates, you can simply get the stand-alone package for this update from the Microsoft Update Catalog website.

KB4053577  bugs

While Microsoft didn’t list any known KB4053577 bugs, a few users reported that the patch apparently blocks Adobe Flash Player from running video content.

I have an HP Pavilion G series i3 M370 laptop with an Intel HD Graphics chip. […] Since yesterday’s windows update when I try to run video content on the UK BBC website I get an error whereby the video runs but I get random green rectangular blocks disrupting the video. […]
I have checked this with Chrome, Firefox and Edge and all display the same problem. […] I’m guessing that the Adobe Flash update KB4053577 has caused the problem. I’ve uninstalled this and also uninstalled Flash Player and re-installed both. This has not fixed the problem.
