This update addresses a potential vulnerability in the Adobe License Management Service, which is installed with various Adobe products that require product activation. It affects only computers running Windows®. Note that Adobe is not aware of any report of malicious code that exploits this vulnerability, but Adobe wants to be proactive by providing users with a simple mechanism to protect their systems.
The vulnerability exists due to a flaw in the installation of the License Management Service, which can lead to an unauthorized person gaining access to the user's computer. The unauthorized person can exploit this vulnerability to run a program with administrator privileges.
Running this update will remove the vulnerability by installing a newer version of the Adobe License Management Service.
