For the August edition of Patch Tuesday, Adobe Systems today supplied fixes for 26 vulnerabilities — 11 critical — in Acrobat and Reader and one in its image organization and manipulation software Lightroom Classic.

Nine of the 11 critical flaws can result in arbitrary code execution. Two are caused by out-of-bounds write conditions (CVE-2020-9693, CVE-2020-9694), five are identified as five errors (CVE-2020-9698, CVE-2020-9699, CVE-2020-9700, CVE-2020-9701, CVE-2020-9704), and two are use-after-free bugs (CVE-2020-9715, CVE-2020-9722). The final two critical vulnerabilities are a pair of security feature bypass flaws (CVE-2020-9696, CVE-2020-9712).
