We already know that many of you are waiting for the Patch Tuesday monthly batch of security updates and we’re here to make it a bit easier for you to find what you’re looking for.

It goes without saying that Microsoft isn’t the only company that has such a rollout on a monthly basis. So, in this article, we’re going to talk about Adobe and some of the patches for their products.

As we’re pretty sure you know by now, we will also include links to the download source, so you don’t have to scour the internet to find them.

Adobe releases a batch of fixes for 27 CVEs

As far as June 2022 is concerned, the company released six patches addressing 46 CVEs in Adobe Illustrator, InDesign, InCopy, Bridge, Robohelp, and Animate.

By far the largest update belonged to Illustrator, which addresses 17 total CVEs, with the most severe of these bugs allowing code execution if an affected system opens a specially crafted file.

Looking at this month’s release, you should know that Adobe addressed 27 CVEs in four patches for Acrobat and Reader, Photoshop, RoboHelp, and Adobe Character Animator.

For starters, we would like to mention that the Acrobat and Reader update addresses a combination of 22 different Critical- and Important-rated bugs.

It goes without saying that the most severe of these could allow code execution if an attacker convinces a target to open a specially crafted PDF document.

Keep in mind that, while there are no active attacks noted, Adobe did actually list this as a Priority 2 deployment rating.

For July 2022, the update designed for Photoshop only fixes one Critical- and one Important-rated bug, in case you were wondering.

The fix update for Character Animator addresses two Critical-rated code execution bugs, one a heap overflow and the other an out-of-bounds (OOB) read.

Before we conclude, we have to mention that the patch for RoboHelp corrects a single Important-rated cross-site scripting (XSS) bug.

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

The popular company categorizes most of these updates as a deployment priority rating of 3, with the Acrobat patch being the lone exception at 2.

This is what you are looking at in terms of Patch Tuesday releases for Adobe for the month of July 2022, so hurry up and get the software.
