Adobe Re-Patches Critical Acrobat Reader Flaw


Adobe has issued yet another patch for a critical vulnerability in its Acrobat Reader – a week after the original fix.

A week after Adobe fixed a critical zero-day vulnerability in its Acrobat Reader, the company issued another patch after a researcher dug up a way to bypass the original fix.

This previous vulnerability (CVE-2019-7089) was fixed in Adobe’s regularly scheduled security update last week. But Adobe said that its recent patch for the sensitive data leakage vulnerability, which could enable information disclosure, had a hole.

“Adobe has released security updates for Adobe Acrobat and Reader for Windows and macOS,” said Adobe in its unscheduled Thursday update. “These updates address a reported bypass to the fix for CVE-2019-7089 first introduced in 2019.010.20091, 2017.011.30120 and 2015.006.30475 and released on February 12, 2019.”
