Adobe Tackles Over 100 Vulnerabilities

A new set of security updates from Adobe has just been released. These new updates effect Acrobat, Reader, Flash Player, Connect, and Experience Manager. Over 100 vulnerabilities are patched thanks to these updates.

The risk involved in not deploying the new updates is that a remote attacker could exploit some of these vulnerabilities to take control of an affected system.

Review Adobe Security Bulletins APSB18-21, APSB18-24, APSB18-22, and APSB18-23 and apply the necessary updates.

Robert Brown, Director of Services said, “Many of these updates are Priority 2, which means they should be highly prioritised for deployment this month.” Ensure these updates are a part of your patching strategy.

Microsoft Half-Year Evaluation

According to an article by The Zero Day Initiative, there seems to a be a rise in the number of bugs reported in Microsoft products. However, they caution that this doesn’t mean that there is an increase in issues with the product. The number of bug reports has increased 121% from the same period last year.

The number of released patches is only up by 8%, so the article argues this is an indicator of program growth. A large number of these bugs were also in the browser space; IE, Edge, and Chakra Core.

Keep an eye on Microsoft’s Patch Tuesday releases as they may attempt to increase their output of updates.
