The majority of the fixes were for its Adobe Framemaker, a document processor, according to the software provider’s security advisory.
Adobe Framemaker versions 2019.0.4 and below on the Microsoft Windows operating system suffered from 21 critical vulnerabilities. With an attacker able to execute arbitrary code was the result of the buffer errors, heap overflow problems, out-of-bounds write, and memory corruption issues.
