Adobe Patches Critical Code Execution Vulnerabilities in Several Products

Adobe on Tuesday announced that it has patched a total of 10 vulnerabilities across its Acrobat and Reader, Connect, Commerce, and Campaign Standard products.

Adobe on Tuesday announced that it has patched a total of 10 vulnerabilities across its Acrobat and Reader, Connect, Commerce, and Campaign Standard products.

Adobe has patched four vulnerabilities in Acrobat and Reader for Windows and macOS. Two of the flaws, described as use-after-free and out-of-bounds issues, have been classified as critical and they can lead to arbitrary code execution in the context of the current user. The other two are moderate-severity flaws that can be exploited for privilege escalation.

In Reader for Android, the company fixed an important-severity issue that could lead to information disclosure and arbitrary code execution.

In Adobe Campaign Standard for Windows and Linux, the software giant addressed a critical cross-site scripting (XSS) bug. An XSS flaw was also patched in Connect, along with a critical code execution vulnerability related to deserialization of untrusted data.

A critical deserialization issue has also been resolved in Adobe ops-cli, an open source Python wrapper used internally by the company.

An XSS vulnerability has also been fixed in Adobe’s Commerce product. This is a stored XSS and it can be exploited without authentication, but the company only assigned it an important severity rating.

None of these vulnerabilities appears to have been exploited in attacks, and since they all have priority ratings of 2 or 3, Adobe believes they are unlikely to be leveraged by malicious actors in their operations.
