In addition, Adobe has released an out-of-band security update for two critical vulnerabilities in Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Reader that could lead to privilege elevation and arbitrary code execution. CVE-2018-16018 allows a remote attacker to bypass security restrictions and gain elevated privileges by persuading a victim to open a specially crafted document. CVE-2018-16011 allows a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on a targeted system due to a use-after-free error, by persuading a victim to open a specially crafted document. Though attackers have not been seen exploiting these two critical vulnerabilities in the wild, we advise organisations to install the latest patches to protect themselves from potential attacks.
