Adobe Bridge is a file browsing and organization software used by photographers and designers. According to security researchers, versions 12.0.3 and earlier as well as 13.0.1 and earlier of Adobe Bridge are affected by a vulnerability that can allow hackers to execute malicious code on users’ computers.

The vulnerability is an out-of-bounds write issue that occurs when a victim opens a specially crafted file in the affected versions of Adobe Bridge. Hackers can exploit this to run arbitrary code with the same privileges as the logged-in user. This means they can infect the system, steal sensitive files, install malware and do other damage.

To carry out attacks, hackers would need to trick victims into opening a malicious file, perhaps by disguising it as an innocent image or document. One click is all it takes for them to potentially take over your computer.

The good news is Adobe has released security updates to patch this flaw. Users are strongly advised to update to the latest versions of Adobe Bridge immediately to protect themselves against any potential attacks. You should also be cautious about opening files from unknown or untrusted sources until your software is updated.

Taking quick action to update your Adobe Bridge can help prevent hackers from gaining access to your files and sensitive personal information through this newly discovered vulnerability. Staying on top of software updates is one of the best ways to keep your devices and data secure.
