Adobe’s Patch Tuesday for Acrobat/Reader – ColdFusion Problems
Adobe will release a round of updates on Patch Tuesday (as usual). This month, Patch Tuesday (which involves Microsoft and Adobe, sometimes Oracle) will be on January 8. It’s first updates involve vulnerabilities in Reader and Acrobat products, while the other issues involve ColdFusion vulnerabilities.
“Adobe is aware of reports of security issues in ColdFusion 10, 9.0.2, 9.0.1 and 9.0 for Windows, Macintosh and UNIX that are being exploited in the wild. We are currently evaluating the reports and plan to issue a security advisory as soon as we have determined mitigation guidance for ColdFusion customers and a timeline for a fix,” said Adobe’s Wendy Poland in an advisory posted January 3.
From the good news side of things, none of these vulnerabilities are being actively exploited in the wild. But, let’s not get too hasty to underestimate threats. Make sure to get patched on Tuesday!
Vulnerabilities in Adobe Reader and Acrobat versions 11.0.0 and earlier are going to be patched next week.
Last month, there were issues in Flash Player and ColdFusion. Looks like these are favorites of hackers as of late.
