Adobe has patched a critical flaw in its software that would have allowed attackers to remotely take control of a system.
Versions 18.104.22.168 and earlier were vulnerable, on both Mac and PC – so ensure you’re updated!
Adobe released the patch with ‘priority 1’ for getting it installed – meaning the update ‘resolves vulnerabilities being targeted, or which have a higher risk of being targeted, by exploit(s) in the wild for a given product version and platform. Adobe recommends administrators install the update as soon as possible. (for example, within 72 hours)’.
