Adobe closes vulnerabilities in Acrobat and Lightroom

Adobe has released security updates for Acrobat, Acrobat Reader, Lightroom and the Flash Player.

Adobe has fixed bugs in Flash Player that are not security related. The new version is available for all platforms except for the Flash Player integrated in Internet Explorer and Edge (EdgeHTML). The Flash Player will be discontinued at the end of the year. It is rarely needed on the web - at best for browser games: the best Flash games for the office.

Adobe has closed a total of 26 vulnerabilities in its PDF tools Acrobat and Acrobat Reader. These include 11 vulnerabilities that Adobe classifies as critical. Nine of these gaps are suitable for infiltrating code using prepared PDF files and executing it with user rights. The other vulnerabilities are shown as important.
