Tech giant Adobe on March 13 released security updates patching up critical and important security holes in its Dreamweaver CC, Adobe Connect and Flash Player products. Dreamweaver CC is used for website creation, Connect is used for web meetings and Flash Player is used for executing and displaying content from a Small Web Format (SWF) file. Five vulnerabilities were patched up in which three are identified as critical.

The tally contains vulnerabilities as critical as Arbitrary Code Execution and Remote Code Execution, which if exploited successfully could allow for arbitrary code execution in the context of the privileges alloted to the current user. Other important vulnerabilities enlisted are Arbitrary file deletion and Information disclosure, which can lead to unintended arbitrary local file removal or forced uninstall of an application using cross-site scripting via an unrestricted SWF file upload vulnerability.
