Adobe Patches 13 Vulnerabilities in Illustrator

Adobe’s February Patch Tuesday updates address over a dozen vulnerabilities, most of which impact the company’s Illustrator vector graphics software.

Adobe’s February Patch Tuesday updates address over a dozen vulnerabilities, most of which impact the company’s Illustrator vector graphics software.

In the Windows and macOS versions of Illustrator, Adobe resolved 13 vulnerabilities, including two that have been assigned a “critical severity” rating — “high severity” based on their CVSS score. The company has assigned “important” ratings to seven security bugs that can lead to memory leaks or application denial of service (DoS).

All of these issues were reported to Adobe by two Fortinet researchers. One of them also informed the software giant about a critical code execution vulnerability in Photoshop.

The company has also patched a critical code execution flaw in After Effects and in the Creative Cloud installer for Windows. In Premiere Rush, it addressed a moderate-severity privilege escalation.

Adobe says it’s not aware of any attacks exploiting these vulnerabilities. Since they all have a priority rating of “3,” the company believes they are unlikely to ever be exploited.

Last month, Adobe patched 26 vulnerabilities in its Acrobat and Reader products, including flaws that earned researchers $150,000 at China’s Tianfu Cup hacking contest, which took place in October.
