Another 32 holes found in Adobe products

The most holey software in the world (read Adobe Flash Player) obtains another 32 vulnerabilities. System owners with Windows, Macintosh, Linux and ChromeOS systems are at risk of losing control of the system, and who still use Adobe Flash Player.

Not only the widespread Adobe Flash Player contains code errors that affect security, but also a cross-platform Adobe AIR runtime environment for RIA applications created using HTML, Ajax, Flash and Flex.

The effective use of these vulnerabilities could allow arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the current user. And they take into account the fact that the vast majority of ordinary users work on systems with administrator privileges, execution of code with elevated privileges can allow the attacker to take control of the attacked computer. What's more, attackers are able to cause a software failure, lead to a buffer overflow, which in turn could result in arbitrary code execution with administrator privileges.

We recommend that you update Adobe software to version 19.0.0.185 as soon as possible. Details on this page.
