The January Patch Tuesday updates are here adding improved security features to all the supported Windows operating systems.

As always, Adobe rolled out their own security updates for a series of products affected by various security vulnerabilities.

The updates target five critical security issues that could enable arbitrary code execution on Illustrator following memory corruption attacks. The affected versions are Illustrator CC 2019 versions 24.0 and earlier running on Windows computers.

These vulnerabilities are described in detail under the following security reports:

  • CVE-2020-3710
  • CVE-2020-3711
  • CVE-2020-3712
  • CVE-2020-3713
  • CVE-2020-3714

The updates are rated 3 on the company’s severity and priority rating system. This means the product has not been a target for hackers. This is reassuring for users, but the best approach is to install the update for peace of mind.

To benefit from the latest security patches, Adobe recommends that users install the newest software version via the Creative Cloud desktop app. Simply launch your Adobe product, go to Help and search for updates.

Adobe Experience Manager, the company’s content management solution for building websites also received important security updates this month (CVE-2019-16466 and CVE-2019-16467). These flaws could enable hackers to send malware code to users via specially crafted web apps.
