Adobe warns of critical Acrobat and Reader zero-day exploited in attacks

Adobe has released security updates to patch a zero-day vulnerability in Acrobat and Reader tagged as exploited in attacks.

“Adobe is aware that CVE-2023-26369 has been exploited in the wild in limited attacks targeting Adobe Acrobat and Reader,” the company said in a security advisory published today.

While threat actors can exploit it in low-complexity attacks without requiring privileges, the flaw can only be exploited by local attackers, and it also requires user interaction, according to its CVSS v3.1 score.

Today, Adobe addressed more security flaws that can let attackers gain arbitrary code execution on systems running unpatched Adobe Connect and Adobe Experience Manager software.

In July, Adobe pushed an emergency ColdFusion security update to address a zero-day exploited in the wild as part of limited attacks.
