Adobe Reader Multiple Unspecified Security Vulnerabilities

I think that this one may have slipped under the radar, so I’m bringing it up.  I mean, who doesn’t have an Adobe reader on their system nowadays?  Sure there are plenty of alternatives to the Adobe reader, but that should be a different discussion.

According the the noice, they lumped a bunch of updates in to one advisory.  The advisory addresses just about every major OS at various levels of risk.  Some of the risks include remote code execureion, as interpreted form the advisory.

Go update your Acrobat reader, or switch to an alternative.

Vuln: Adobe Reader Multiple Unspecified Security Vulnerabilities

Larry Pesce

A self-professed, lifelong “tinkerer and explorer,” Larry always wanted to know how things work. “I found myself getting to engage in deep dives of technology from an early age: My dad built the family television from a kit, and I helped. It caught fire. Twice. I helped fix it both times.”

The help and advice received from the infosec community throughout his career inspired him to share what he had learned to help others secure their networks and improve their craft. Part of that ongoing sharing has been as the co-founder and co-host of the international award winning Paul’s Security Weekly podcast for more than 19 years.

Larry has spent the last 15 years as a penetration tester, spending lots of time focused on Healthcare, ICS/OT, Wireless, and IoT/IIoT/Embedded Devices, but now focuses his efforts on securing the software supply chain at Finite State.
