Adobe January 2017 Patches

Adobe today released a security update for Flash (APSB17-02) and it updated an update released last week for Acrobat/PDF Reader (APSB17-01). 

The Acrobat/PDF Reader update addresses 29 vulnerabilities. Many of these vulnerabilities are considered critical as they can lead to code execution, but currently, there are no known exploits available according to Adobe. Later today, we should expect an update from Microsoft addressing these issues in Microsoft products that include Flash.

The Flash update fixes 13 vulnerabilities and exploitation of some of these vulnerabilities may also lead to code execution. Adobe considers this update a higher priority than the PDF Reader update.
