Adobe has released security updates to fix major vulnerabilities in its Adobe Flash, Adobe ColdFusion, and Adobe Campaign software products. The update for Flash patches a critical use-after-free vulnerability (CVE-2019-7845) that can lead to arbitrary code execution (ACE) attack. The ColdFusion updates also address three critical ACE vulnerabilities (CVE-2019-7838, CVE-2019-7839, and CVE-2019-7840) in the platform. On the other hand, seven vulnerabilities that existed in Adobe Campaign, including one rated critical (CVE-2019-7850), was also remediated with new updates.

Out of the 25 vulnerabilities addressed, nine were rated as high severity. The high-impact flaws were found in Intel NUC, Intel RAID Web Console 3 (RWC3), Intel Accelerated Storage Manager and in Intel Rapid Storage Technology Enterprise (RSTe). The flaws could lead to an escalation of privilege(EoP), denial of service (DoS) or result in information disclosure (ID).
Other products covered in the advisories include vulnerabilities in Intel® Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 driver, Open Cloud Integrity Technology (Open CIT), OpenAttestation, Intel® Omni-Path Fabric Manager GUI, ITE Tech* Consumer Infrared Driver for Windows 10, INF Update Utility, Intel® PROSet/Wireless WiFi Software and Intel® SGX driver for Linux.
