Adobe issued a security advisory and patch for Creative Cloud Desktop Application version 5.0 and earlier for Windows.

The advisory was issued late last week and centers on a single critical vulnerability, CVE-2020-3808, which is a time-of-check to time-of-use race condition that if exploited can lead to arbitrary file deletion. The issue can be mitigated by downloading version 5.1.
