Adobe on Tuesday released security updates for its multimedia platform Shockwave Player and RoboHelp for Word, a tool used to author content for online help systems. The Shockwave update to version 11.6.4.634 addresses nine "critical" vulnerabilities, all of which could be exploited to load malware on a user's system. Meanwhile, the RoboHelp upgrade fills one hole, labeled "important," through which "a specially crafted URL could be used to create a cross-site scripting attack on web-based output generated using RoboHelp for Word."
