Adobe Warns of Critical Flaws in Magento, Connect

Software maker Adobe has shipped security patches for flaws in its Adobe Magento and Connect product lines, warning that exploitation could lead to remote code execution attacks.

As part of its scheduled Patch Tuesday release, Adobe released fixes for 29 documented security vulnerabilities, some serious enough to expose users to code execution, security feature bypass, and privilege escalation attacks.

The Adobe Magento patch lists 26 CVEs with severity ratings ranging from critical to important, according to an advisory from the San Jose, Calif. software vendor. 

Adobe said patches for these flaws are now available for the Magento Commerce and Magento Open Source editions.  Adobe Magento is an open-source e-commerce platform.

The company also shipped an “important” update to its Adobe Connect platform to address a security feature bypass flaw and a pair of cross-site scripting issues that could lead to arbitrary code execution.

Adobe Connect is a suite of software for remote training, web conferencing, presentation, and desktop sharing.
