ANALYST NOTES

As many of these bugs are critical and can lead to arbitrary code execution, Binary Defense recommends updating all affected software to the most recent patch. Additionally, Binary Defense recommends the use of a 24/7 SOC monitoring solution, such as Binary Defense’s Security Operations Task Force, in order to catch any unforeseen Adobe exploits if patching is not an option.
