Updates Released for Acrobat Reader and DC on Mac and Windows

A week after their usually-scheduled monthly update, Adobe released more patches to tackle several vulnerabilities. One of the vulnerabilities addressed is rated as critical. In their security bulletin, Adobe states “Successful exploitation could lead to arbitrary code execution in the context of the current user.”

The remaining vulnerabilities also addressed are rated as ‘important’, so they also could pose a significant threat. While there are no currently known exploits, Adobe recommends the updates be deployed as soon as possible.

Any company should have a stable update deployment strategy already in place. Since Adobe just released its monthly set of updates, work these additional patches into your remediation process. A true IT solution should facilitate the strategies that work best for your unique environments.

Photoshop Gets Edited

Adobe released an out-of-band security update to address two critical remote code execution vulnerabilities impacting Adobe Photoshop CC for Windows and Apple devices.

These two vulnerabilities, identified as CVE-2018-12810 and CVE-2018-12811, impact Adobe Photoshop CC 2018 version 19.x as well as Adobe Photoshop CC 2017 version 18.x.

Although these updates carry an Adobe Priority of 3; meaning it is not currently being exploited, we would advise a proactive deployment of these updates as quickly as possible. Their vulnerabilities are listed as critical and would be very disastrous if active exploitation begins.

Use Syxsense to survey your environment and rapidly deploy any needed updates. On the home page, you can quickly see which devices require critical updates.

By clicking on the gadget, you’ll jump right into a patch deployment process, prepopulated to deploy all critical updates to all devices that need them. You can easily modify this task to be more specific or start the task as-is to deploy the critical patches.
