Adobe Patches Critical Code Execution Flaws in AEM, FrameMaker, InDesign
Adobe on Tuesday informed customers that it has patched a total of 18 vulnerabilities across its Experience Manager (AEM), FrameMaker and InDesign products.
In its InDesign design and publishing product, Adobe fixed five critical memory corruption bugs that can allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code in the context of the targeted user.
In the FrameMaker document processor, the company patched two critical out-of-bounds read and stack-based buffer overflow flaws that can lead to arbitrary code execution.
Adobe says it’s not aware of any attacks exploiting these vulnerabilities and based on the priority ratings it has assigned to the flaws it does not expect them to be exploited any time soon.
However, some experts believe these vulnerabilities could be useful to malicious actors.
“The impact of any exploitation of these vulnerabilities, no matter their criticality, could open any organization up to the release of private information, easy lateral movement through a network, or the hijacking of critical information all due to the heavy use of these tools in marketing and its unfettered access to critical information. It is important to patch these vulnerabilities as soon as possible,” explained Richard Melick, senior technical product manager at Automox.
