Adobe issues two security updates for Windows products

The vulnerabilities that may allow attackers to exploit the content

By CBR Staff Writer

Adobe has announced two security updates to address new fresh vulnerabilities that may allow attackers to run malicious code on the affected system.

The first update is issued for RoboHelp 10 on the Windows operating system and it deals with vulnerabilities that enable an attacker to run malicious code on the system.

The second update addresses failure in 11.0.04 version of both the Adobe Reader and Acrobat XI for windows that affected Javascript security controls.

Earlier, Adobe had announced a security breach that has resulted in customer information including customers’ names as well as credit and debit card numbers and expiration dates being accessed.

In February, the company had released emergency security updates for its Flash Player to deal with three vulnerabilities in Flash, which hackers have been exploiting to launch attacks.

The updates were aimed at addressing vulnerabilities that could cause a crash and potentially allow a hacker to take over the affected system.
