Adobe Plugs Security Holes in Acrobat, Reader Software

2023-01-10 14:30

Software maker Adobe has rolled out its first batch of security patches for 2023 with fixes for at least 29 security vulnerabilities in a range of enterprise-facing products.

The most prominent update, for the widely deployed Adobe Acrobat and Reader software, fixes critical-severity flaws that expose Windows and macOS users to code execution attacks.

According to an advisory from Adobe’s PSIRT, the security issues affect Acrobat DC, Acrobat Reader DC, Acrobat 2020 and Acrobat Reader 2020.

“These updates address critical and important vulnerabilities. Successful exploitation could lead to application denial-of-service, arbitrary code execution, privilege escalation and memory leak,” Adobe said.

The company documented 15 distinct security flaws in the Acrobat and Reader software and urged users to apply the available updates immediately.  

Adobe also rolled out fixes for critical-rated flaws in the Adobe InDesign product, warning that successful exploitation could lead to arbitrary code execution, application denial-of-service and memory leaks.  

The six documented Adobe InDesign vulnerabilities affect users on both Windows and macOS platforms.  

Adobe’s Patch Tuesday rollout also includes patches for serious flaws in Adobe InCopy and Adobe Dimension.  These flaws could expose Windows and macOS users to arbitrary code execution and memory leaks.

The company said it was not aware of any exploits in the wild for any of the issues addressed in this batch of updates.
