Adobe Patches Information Disclosure Flaws in Experience Manager

Updates released on Tuesday by Adobe for its Experience Manager and Experience Manager Forms products address several vulnerabilities that can lead to information disclosure.

Adobe Experience Manager is a marketing tool that combines content and digital asset management capabilities. Experience Manager Forms is a component that makes it easy for users to create forms.

Adobe discovered that Experience Manager is affected by two cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities, including one that is stored and considered “important” and one that is reflected and rated “moderate.”

According to Adobe, both vulnerabilities can result in the exposure of sensitive information. However, the security holes have been assigned a priority rating of “2” due to the fact that Experience Manager has not been targeted by malicious actors. For vulnerabilities with this rating, administrators are advised to install the updates within 30 days.

A stored XSS flaw was also discovered in Adobe Experience Manager Forms. The issue was reported to Adobe by Adam Willard.

This vulnerability can also result in the exposure of sensitive information, and it has also been assigned a severity rating of “important” and a priority rating of “2.”

Adobe says it’s not aware of any attempts to exploit these flaws for malicious purposes.

This is the third round of security updates released by Adobe this year. On January 3, the company updated Acrobat and Reader software to address two “critical” vulnerabilities, and, on January 8, it updated Connect and Digital Editions products to fix two “important” issues.
