Adobe Dimension, a popular 3D modeling software, has a vulnerability that could allow hackers to take control of users’ computers.

The vulnerability, tracked as CVE-2023-26373, exists in versions of Adobe Dimension prior to 3.4.8. It is a type of buffer overflow bug that can be exploited by tricking a user into opening a specially crafted file. Once opened, the malicious file could potentially execute code of the attacker’s choice on the affected system.

This gives a hacker full control of the computer and access to files, passwords, and other sensitive information stored on it. They could then install malware, ransomware, or spyware without the user’s knowledge.

The good news is exploitation requires user interaction, so users are not at high risk if they do not open files from untrusted or unknown sources. Adobe has released an update to fix the issue, so all Dimension users should update to the latest version as soon as possible.

It’s also recommended that users be cautious of any files received over email or messaging from people they do not personally know. Verify the sender by contacting them through other known channels before opening any attachments. Keeping software updated helps patch vulnerabilities like this one and keep your devices and data secure.
