As expected, Microsoft wasn't alone with issuing patches today. In addition, Adobe released two bulletins affecting Flex and Cold Fusion. Both bulletins affect developer and server components, not commonly used client software.

APSB11-25: Cross Site Scripting issue in Flex SDK

The Adobe Flex SDK is used to create flash applets for web applications. The vulnerability fixed in this bulletin could lead to cross site scripting problems with these applications.

APSB11-29: Cross Site Scripting in ColdFusion

ColdFusion is a web application platform that may be hosted on Windows, Unix or OS X. This "hot fix" fixes a cross site scripting vulnerability in applications created with ColdFusion.

Three notes:
* APSB11-25 was released on November 30. I was wondering for a while what was going to be in that bulletin, since it was released long after APSB11-26 (Sept 21), -27 (Nov 8), and -28 (Nov 10).
* We still haven't seen the Adobe Reader/Acrobat 9.4.7 update that should be out sometime this week.
* Still no word on the Flash 0-day.
