The defects were reported to Adobe by independent experts and researchers from Qihoo 360, Tencent, Renmin University of China, Cisco Talos, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Baidu and McAfee.

Another serious one error encountered by Adobe was an arbitrary code execution error in Flash Player, the successful exploitation of which could lead to arbitrary code execution.

Adobe has also encountered two vulnerabilities in digital versions, including a critical command injection bug and a major information leak.
