Adobe patches critical flaw in Creative Cloud

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.

Adobe did not roll out any security updates on March Patch Tuesday, as its custom, but this marks the second time it has issued updates since March 10.
