Adobe issues security updates for Flash, hotfix for ColdFusion

12 August 2010

Three security bulletins were released this week by Adobe outlining security updates for Flash Player, ColdFusion, and Flash Media Server.

Adobe has issued a security update for Flash Player that addresses six “critical” vulnerabilities for Flash Player and earlier versions for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Solaris. Also affected by this patch is Adobe AIR and earlier versions for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

The vulnerabilities listed in the security advisory could cause the applications to crash and allow attackers to take control of the affected system Adobe said, but the company added it was not aware of any active exploits in the wild for these particular vulnerabilities, or for any of the updates issued for ColdFusion and Flash Media Server.

A hotfix for Adobe ColdFusion was also delivered with this security update that addresses one “important” vulnerability affecting versions 8.x and 9.x for Windows, Mac, and UNIX.

Four critical security vulnerabilities were also patched for Adobe Flash Media Server versions 3.5.3 and 3.0.5 for both Windows and UNIX. This particular hole would allow attackers to run malicious code on a successfully exploited system.
