Updating digital certificates

Customers should not notice anything out of the ordinary during the certificate revocation process.

Adobe investigated what appeared to be the inappropriate use of an Adobe code signing certificate for Windows.

We revoked the impacted certificate on October 4 2012 for all software code signed after July 10 2012.

Note that both the CTL update released on September 24, 2015 and the Windows update released on October 13, 2015 are required for affected systems to be protected from this issue. Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 3097966 documents a currently known issue that customers may experience when installing the update of October 13, 2015. Windows Phone 8 and Windows Phone 8.1 devices automatically received the CTL update of September 24, 2015; however, these devices do not allow installation of third-party drivers, even if signed, so they do not require the secondary update of October 13, 2015. In addition to containing non-security updates, it also contains all of the security fixes for all of the Windows 10-affected vulnerabilities shipping with given month’s security release.
