Adobe rolled out patches yesterday (Aug. 9) to fix a number of critical security flaws in several of its popular software products, including Flash, Shockwave and Photoshop.

In total, Adobe updated 23 flaws; 13 for Flash Player version, seven for Shockwave and one each for Photoshop CS5, Flash Media Server and RoboHelp. With the exception of the RoboHelp update, Adobe classified each of the vulnerabilities as "Critical."

Earning a critical label means an outside attacker could exploit the bug to take control of an infected system.

The Adobe updates affect users of Mac, Windows, Solaris and Linux operating systems, as well as Android smartphone owners.

Although Adobe said none of the bugs are currently being exploited "in the wild," the company urged its customers to update their software to the most updated versions, which can be downloaded from Adobe's website.
