Adobe September 2016 Security Update

Today Adobe released three security updates that patched Adobe Flash, AIR and Adobe Digital Editions. Top priority goes to Adobe flash bulletin APSB16-29 which fixes a whopping 29 vulnerabilities. This update applies to Windows, Macintosh, Linux and ChromeOS platforms.

The Adobe Flash update resolves integer overflow, memory corruption and use-after-free issues that could allow attackers to take complete control of the victim machine if the victim views flash contents in the browser.  Some security bypass vulnerabilities were also fixed which lead to information disclosure.

The following versions were affected:

Adobe classifies all issues with a priority rating of 1 which implies higher risk of being targeted by exploits in the wild. It’s interesting to note that all issues found in the Flash advisory were found by third-party researchers. As flash is targeted by many exploit kits, we recommend you patch immediately.
