“The price to pay for freedom is eternal vigilance”. And we must be vigilant with the Internet every day, since failures, problems – such as the global fall of the Internet medium that we suffered this afternoon – and vulnerabilities constantly arise. Precisely the latter is what Adobe has reported and has echoed the INCIBE website, the National Institute of Cybersecurity.
Vulnerabilities in Photoshop
Apparently, Adobe has found several vulnerabilities to fix in the following versions, for both Windows and Apple’s macOS:
– Photoshop 2020 version 21.2.9 and earlier.
– Photoshop 2021 version 22.4.2 and earlier.
– Adobe Premiere Pro version 15.2 and earlier.
The company has published a series of security updates in order to correct said vulnerabilities, classified as “high severity”. So that you don’t have to worry about your safety using one of these affected Photoshop and Premiere versions, you should update them to:
– Photoshop 2020 version 21.2.10 and later.
– Photoshop 2021 version 22.4.3 and later.
– Adobe Premiere Pro version 15.4 and later.
The vulnerabilities fixed son:
– One buffer overflow stack-based that could lead to arbitrary code execution.
– A wrong input validation which could lead to arbitrary reading of the file system.
– One memory location access after the end of the buffer that could lead to arbitrary code execution.
According to INCIBE, “It is advisable to enable, whenever possible, the automatic update in these products to have, in addition to the latest functionalities, the patches that correct security flaws as they are discovered and published ”.
