Newly Discovered Adobe Exploits

Adobe…what’s going on with all of these exploits? Between Adobe Acrobat/Reader and Adobe Flash it seems there are new Adobe Exploits every few weeks.

The latest Security Bulletin from Adobe, APSB19-02, includes two new exploits present in Windows and Mac versions of Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Reader. Adobe has classified these exploits as “High-Priority”, this means the exploit is present but so far hasn’t been taken advantage of by known malware, ransomware, and viruses. Adobe recommends that you complete the patching within 30 days.

Here are the versions that are affected:
