Adobe Substance 3D Stager, a 3D content creation software, is affected by a vulnerability that could allow hackers to execute malicious code on users’ computers.

The vulnerability, tracked as CVE-2023-25870, is an out-of-bounds memory write issue that can be exploited if a victim opens a specially crafted file. This would allow an attacker to run arbitrary code and potentially gain complete control of the affected system.

Adobe Substance 3D Stager versions 2.0.0 and earlier are impacted. By opening a malicious file, hackers could install programs, view, change, or delete data, or create new accounts with full user rights.

It’s also recommended to exercise caution when opening files from external sources and be wary of email attachments or downloads from untrusted websites. Following basic cyber safety practices like these helps stay one step ahead of online threats.
