Adobe Dimension Users Beware of Malicious Files

CVSScvssV3_1: 7.8

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-2023-26372, 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 risk if they do not open files from untrusted or unknown sources. Adobe has also released an update to fix the issue, so all Dimension users should update to the latest version as soon as possible.

In general, it’s best practice to avoid opening files, especially executable files, from external locations you do not fully trust. Keep your software updated, use antivirus software, and be wary of email attachments or downloads from sketchy websites to help stay protected.
