Adobe on Tuesday announced the release of security updates for its Flash Player, Framemaker and Experience Manager products.
In Flash Player, for which Adobe plans on providing security updates only until the end of the year, the company patched a critical use-after-free bug that can allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code in the context of the current user.
A patch for this vulnerability is included in Flash Player 22.214.171.1247, including for Chrome, Edge and Internet Explorer.
In its Framemaker document processor, Adobe fixed three critical vulnerabilities, including two out-of-bounds write issues that allow arbitrary code execution, and a memory corruption bug that can also be exploited for code execution.
Honggang Ren of Fortinet’s FortiGuard Labs and researcher Francis Provencher have been credited for reporting these vulnerabilities to Adobe.
Adobe says it has seen no evidence that these vulnerabilities have been exploited for malicious purposes and based on the priority ratings assigned by the company they are unlikely to be exploited in the near future.
