Adobe Patch Tuesday: Code Execution Flaws in Acrobat, Reader – SecurityWeek

Software maker Adobe has released patches for at least 25 documented security vulnerabilities that expose Windows and macOS users to malicious hacker attacks.
The most urgent fix affects the ubiquitous Adobe Acrobat and Reader software used to create, view and manage PDF files across platforms.
“These [Acrobat and Reader] updates address multiple critical and important vulnerabilities. Successful exploitation could lead to arbitrary code execution and memory leak,” Adobe said in a critical-severity advisory released Tuesday.
The Adobe Reader and Acrobat bulletin documents seven distinct vulnerabilities, noting that the majority are related to memory safety issues.
Adobe said it was not aware of any exploits in the wild for any of the patched vulnerabilities.
The company also released security fixes for another seven vulnerabilities in the Adobe Commerce and Magento Open Source online shopping software. Adobe’s bulletin warns that successful exploitation of these bugs could lead to arbitrary code execution, privilege escalation and security feature bypass.
Adobe also released a bulletin with details on a quartet of security defects in the Adobe Illustrator 2022 software. The company said the patch is available for Windows and macOS users and resolves critical and important vulnerabilities that could lead to arbitrary code execution and memory leaks.
This month’s batch of patches also includes fixes for code execution and memory leak flaws in Adobe FrameMaker and privilege escalation issues in Adobe Premiere Elements.
