We know that many of you are eagerly waiting for the Patch Tuesday monthly batch of updates and we’re here to make it easier for you to find them

And, as you surely know, Microsoft isn’t the only company that releases software during this day. So, in this article, we’re going to talk about Adobe and some of the patches for their products.

As always, we will include links to the download source, so you don’t have to scout the internet to find them.

Adobe addresses only two critical-rated bugs this month

This month, Adobe only released three patches addressing six CVEs in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and After Effects.

We’ll start with the update for Illustrator, which is rated Critical, and it addresses a single buffer overflow that could lead to arbitrary code execution.

As far as the updates for Photoshop go, this month we only get one that fixes a single Important-rated memory leak.

And, since we were on the topic of critical-rated code execution bugs, let’s continue the list with the fix for Adobe’s After Effects.

The patch for After Effects is the largest of the three. It fixes four Critical-rated, stacked-based buffer overflows that could result in arbitrary code execution.

As we said, a pretty slow month for Adobe, which is not necessarily bad. Remember that updates released during Patch Tuesday are security ones, which means that the software is getting safer to use.

Also worth noting is that none of the bugs fixed by Adobe this month are listed as publicly known or under active attack at the time of release.

If you are wondering what other helpful security updates were also released today, check out Microsoft’s Patch Tuesday release for March.
