Adobe Plugs Critical Photoshop Security Flaws


The flaws, rated critical, expose both Windows and MacOS users to code execution attacks, Adobe said in an advisory released Tuesday.

The updates, available for Photoshop 2020 and Photoshop 2021, are being pushed via the software’s automatic updating mechanism.

Adobe described the vulnerabilities as memory corruption issues with 7.8 CVSS scores.

The company also shipped advisories with patches for serious bugs in Adobe Media Encoder (code execution, critical), multiple major security defects in Adobe Bridge and Adobe Captivate.

Adobe also pushed a patch to cover multiple code execution holes in the Adobe XMP Toolkit SDK.
