    Flash Player updates, and Security Patches vs Software Distribution

    Rookie

      What is the difference between security patches and software distribution?  For example, if a Google Chrome update shows as either a security patch or software distribution, isn't the process the same?  Shavlik pushes down the latest installer and installs it?

       

      I ask this because I have software distribution turned off.  I only do security patches and non-security patches.  Usually. this is fine.  However, with the recent Flash Player updates, these only showed as software distribution, so I missed them because they weren't security patches.

       

      Can you shed some light on this?

       

      Also, will the latest Flash Player updates ever appear as security updates?
