Editor’s note: This story was updated to correct the number of vulnerabilities and affected products fixed by Adobe in this month’s Patch Tuesday releases.

Software maker Adobe on Tuesday rolled out patches to fix at least 166 vulnerabilities in a wide range of products and issued warnings about the risk of code execution attacks on Windows and macOS platforms.

As part of its scheduled Patch Tuesday updates, the company documented serious security problems in enterprise-facing products, including a hefty patch dump that fixes 144 distinct issues in the Adobe Experience Manager.

“Successful exploitation of these vulnerabilities could result in arbitrary code execution, arbitrary file system read and security feature bypass,” Adobe warned, noting that they affect all platforms.

The company also flagged a major Adobe Commerce,  Magento Open Source and Adobe Commerce Webhooks Plugin update that fixes at least 10 critical and important vulnerabilities. “Successful exploitation could lead to arbitrary code execution, security feature bypass and privilege escalation,” Adobe said.

The San Jose, Calif. company also rolled out fixes for security defects in Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Audition, Adobe Media Encoder, Adobe FrameMaker Publishing Server, Adobe Commerce, Adobe ColdFusion, Adobe Substance 3D Stager, Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop and Adobe Acrobat Android.

Adobe said it was not aware of any exploits in the wild for any of the issues addressed this month.
