Patches for Microsoft and Adobe address several security vulnerabilities

Microsoft and Adobe released this week plenty of patches for their software.


Microsoft released as planned the MS13-052 to 058 bulletins which resolve six critical  vulnerabilities in Microsoft software. The most severe vulnerability could allow remote code execution if a user views shared content that embeds TrueType font files. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could take complete control of an affected system. Also Internet Explorer was affected and MS13-055 solves 17 vulnerabilities.

The full version of the Microsoft Security Bulletin Summary for July 2013 can be found at

If you haven’t updated until today, please do so because pretty much all Microsoft products are affected.




Adobe also released 3 security bulletins  which address vulnerabilities in Flash Player, Shockwave and Coldfusion.  For Adobe Reader the update addresses vulnerabilities that could cause a crash and potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system. For Shockwave the update addresses a vulnerability that could allow an attacker, who successfully exploits this vulnerability, to run malicious code on the affected system.
