Adobe FrameMaker 2019 <= 15.0.8 (2019.0.8) / Adobe FrameMaker 2020 <= 16.0.4 (2020.0.4) Multiple Vulnerabilities (APSB22-27)

high Nessus Plugin ID 161175


The remote install of Adobe FrameMaker has multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of Adobe FrameMaker installed on the remote Windows host is 2019 release prior or equal to 15.0.8, or 2020 release 16.0.4. It is, therefore, potentially affected by multiple arbitrary code execution vulnerabilities due to out-of-bounds writes as well as a memory leak vulnerability due to an out-of-bounds-read, as referenced in the APSB22-27 advisory.

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade to Adobe FrameMaker version 15.0.9, 16.0.5 or later.
