Adobe has released patches addressing a wave of critical flaws in its Framemaker and Flash Player products, which, if exploited, could lead to arbitrary code-execution.

Overall, Adobe stomped out flaws tied to 42 CVEs for its regularly scheduled February updates, with 35 of those flaws being critical in severity. That trumps Adobe’s January security update, which addressed nine vulnerabilities overall, including ones in Adobe Illustrator CC and Adobe Experience Manager.

Adobe Framemaker, a document processor designed for writing and editing large or complex documents, including structured documents, took the brunt of this month’s patches with the most (21) critical flaws.

“This update addresses multiple critical vulnerabilities,” according to Adobe in its Tuesday update. “Successful exploitation could lead to arbitrary code-execution in the context of the current user.”
