Adobe Patches with Fixes for More than 90 Documented Vulnerabilities


Adobe announced a series of urgent patches on Tuesday, fixing more than 90 reported vulnerabilities that leave users vulnerable to dangerous hacker attacks on Windows, macOS, and Linux.

Adobe Photoshop, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Illustrator, and Adobe Premiere are among the products affected by the security flaws.

Adobe provided documentation for 92 vulnerabilities in all, with more than 60 of them posing a risk of remote code execution.

Adobe issued separate advisories outlining the vulnerabilities in Adobe After Effects (11), Audition (9), Bridge (9), Character Animation (8), Prelude (9), Lightroom Classic (1), Illustrator (5), Media Encoder (6), Premiere Pro (6), Animate (10), Premiere Elements (7), InDesign (3), XMP Toolkit SDK (5), and Photoshop (3).

There are a total of 61 vulnerabilities classified as serious arbitrary code execution flaws. A total of five memory leaks have been classified as “critical.”

It’s worth noting that vulnerabilities with CVSS scores that generally equate to “high severity” defects have been given “critical” severity ratings by Adobe.

According to the corporation, it is not aware of any attacks using these vulnerabilities and does not expect them to be exploited in the future based on the priority ratings it has assigned to them.
