Adobe published two advisories today:

(Correction: APSB13-25 was released last month, and I have removed it from this diary. Instead, APSB13-27 was added below)

APSB13-26: Security Updates for Flash Player

This update affects the Windows, OS X as well as the Linux version of Adobe Flash Player 11.9 (11.2 for Linux) , as well as Adobe Air 3.9. The Flashplayer vulnerability is assigned a priority of "1" on Windows and OS X which indicates an exploit has been sighted in the wild and Adobe recommends patch "as soon as possible" (72 hrs).

Vulnerabilities that are covered by this patch: CVE-2013-5329, CVE-2013-5330.

APSB13-27: Hotfix for Coldfusion

This hotfix affects Coldfusion 9 as well as 10. Adobe assigned it a priority of 1 for Coldfusion 10 and 2 for Coldfusion 9.x . The hotfix patches two vulnerabilities:

1 - A reflective XSS vulnerability in Coldfusion 9/10 (CVE-2013-5326)
2 - An authentication bypass problem in Coldfusion 10 (CVE-2013-5328)

The second vulnerability which allows unauthorized remote read access is probably the reason this hotfix is rated "1" for Coldfusion 10.



Google released a new version of Chrome today: Chrome 31. The update includes 25 security fixes. Not exactly a security fix, but still interesting: Chrome 31 improves the SSL ciphers by adding support for the AES-GCM ciphers.
