    Was latest Adobe Shockwave Player Classified Incorrectly?

      Hi, we usually filter out all but "Security Updates" from our views within Patch Manager as a means to eliminate the things we need to sift through when deploying 3rd party updates.

       

      We noticed that the latest "Adobe Shockwave Player 12.0.7.148 MSI (Upgrade)" is classified as "Tools" and not "Security Updates".

       

      Reading into the Adobe Security Bulletin located HERE, it shows that this is in fact a Security Update not just a "tool". A couple screenshots below.

      Is there a specific reason why this was classified as a Tool when all other indications show it as a Security Update?

       

      Thanks,

      G
