Adobe today released updates for four of its widely used software—including Adobe Acrobat and Reader, Photoshop CC, ColdFusion, and Brackets—to patch a total of 25 new security vulnerabilities.
The software update for Adobe Acrobat and Reader for Windows and macOS operating systems addresses a total of 21 security vulnerabilities, 14 of which are critical, and rest are important in severity.
Upon successful exploitation, all critical vulnerabilities in Adobe Acrobat and Reader software lead to arbitrary code execution attacks, allowing attackers to take complete control of targeted systems.
The software update for Brackets addresses a critical code execution flaw, which was disclosed by Tavis Ormandy of Google Project Zero.
Adobe ColdFusion update comes with a security patch for an important privilege escalation bug, which occurs due to insecure inherited permissions of the default installation directory.
The company has released updated versions for all four vulnerable software for each impacted platform that users should install immediately to protect their systems and businesses from cyber-attacks.
