It’s already common for Adobe to release its security updates a bit sooner. Now, with the February 2020 Patch Tuesday, the company patched a set of important vulnerabilities for almost all of its products.
Adobe products are affected by 40 CVEs
It seems like from the last security updates there are around 40 CVEs that could affect different Adobe products. These CVEs have severity ranges from Important to Critical.
Check out the full list with all the Adobe products affected:
- Adobe Experience Manager
- Adobe Digital Editions
- Adobe Flash Player
- Adobe Acrobat and Reader
- Adobe Framemaker
Somewhat expected, Adobe Acrobat and Reader along with Adobe Framemaker have the most vulnerabilities.
While Experience Manager, Digital Editions, and Flash Player have priorities of 2 and 3 and were patched for Denial-of-service, Information Disclosure, and Arbitrary Code Execution, for Acrobat, Reader, and Framemaker things are different.
Adobe Acrobat and Reader have the most vulnerabilities
The last three have a priority rating of 2 and 3 also, but the majority of vulnerabilities are marked as Critical.
Besides the Arbitrary Code Execution and Information Disclosure, these products are susceptible to Memory Leak and Arbitrary file system write, which makes them more dangerous.
To keep your system safe, Adobe recommends to immediately update the affected programs to their latest version. This way, you can make sure that the mentioned CVEs can’t affect your PC.
Usually, Adobe product update automatically when a new update is detected. If you want to update your product manually, you can do so by choosing Help > Check for Updates.
Alternatively, you can also find the full installers with the latest version on Adobe’s website.
