Adobe Patches Code Execution Flaws in Connect, Creative Cloud, Framemaker
Adobe on Tuesday announced that it has patched critical code execution vulnerabilities in its Connect, Creative Cloud, and Framemaker products.
In the Creative Cloud desktop application, Adobe fixed three flaws rated critical, including arbitrary file overwrite and OS command injection issues that can lead to code execution, and an improper input validation issue that can be exploited for privilege escalation.
In Framemaker, Adobe patched one critical out-of-bounds read vulnerability that can lead to code execution.
Adobe said it had found no evidence of exploitation for malicious purposes, and since all vulnerabilities have been assigned a priority rating of 3, the company likely does not expect them to ever be exploited in attacks.
The software giant has credited independent security researchers for most of the vulnerabilities fixed with these Patch Tuesday updates.
Adobe last month patched a Reader vulnerability that had been exploited in the wild, but no information has been made available on those attacks.
