These two critical vulnerabilities include two arbitrary code executions, described as out-of-bounds write (CVE-2018-12808), and untrusted pointer dereference (CVE-2018-12799). With critical severity levels, both vulnerabilities affected multiple versions of Adobe Reader DC and Adobe Acrobat DC. This includes software versions for both Windows and Mac OS.

Besides the two critical flaws, Adobe has also released fixes for 9 other vulnerabilities in different Adobe Products. This includes patching five different bugs in Adobe Flash Player: three information disclosure outbound read flaws (CVE-2018-12824, CVE-2018-12826, and CVE-2018-12827), security mitigation bypass (CVE-2018-12825), and a privilege escalation vulnerability (CVE-2018-12828). All these bugs received an “important” severity level.
Besides, three moderately severe flaws were patched in Adobe Experience Manager: Reflected Cross-site Scripting (CVE-2018-12806), Input Validation Bypass (CVE-2018-12807), and Cross-site Scripting (CVE-2018-5005).
