The vulnerability in Adobe Photoshop CC, discovered by Trend Micro Zero Day Initiative and assigned CVE-2019-7094, is a heap corruption issue which affects Photoshop CC 19.1.7 and earlier 19.x versions as well as Photoshop CC 20.0.2 and earlier 20.x versions for Microsoft Windows and Apple macOS operating systems.

Another critical vulnerability, assigned as CVE-2019-7095, resides in the company’s ebook reader software program, Adobe Digital Edition, is a heap overflow flaw that affects versions and below for Microsoft Windows operating system.

Both updates are given a priority rating of 3, which means the vulnerabilities addressed in the updates are unlikely to be exploited in attacks, according to Adobe’s update notes.

Besides releasing security updates, Adobe also announced the long-expected shut down of its Shockwave player for Windows, for which the company will end support on 9 April. The Shockwave player for Apple macOS was discontinued on March 1, 2017.
