Adobe Patch Tuesday: Critical Bugs in Acrobat, Reader, ColdFusion


As part of its scheduled Patch Tuesday updates, Adobe documented 72 distinct security bugs and called special attention to code-execution defects in the widely deployed Adobe Acrobat and Reader software.

In a critical-severity bulletin, Adobe documented at least 17 Acrobat and Reader bugs that expose unpatched Windows and macOS systems to arbitrary code execution and memory leak issues.

Adobe also issued patches for at least six distinct ColdFusion flaws that could lead to arbitrary code execution and security feature bypass. The ColdFusion issues are flagged as critical and affects versions 2023 and 2021.
