Microsoft delays February patches until March

Microsoft has decided to delay the February patches until March – even though there is a possible critical vulnerability not addressed.
While not officially disclosed, some believe it is the “build” mechanism for the patching that is an issue and not a patch itself.
[Updated 2017/02/21:] Word went out that Microsoft would release the Flash Player update but as of “press” time, it hasn’t. The Malicious Software Removal Tool has been released though.
For those who want to at least be slightly more secure, Microsoft did release an interim update late January for v1607 which you can find it here [manual download and install]. There were no updates for the other editions of Windows 10 or older versions of Windows.
