The flaw has a moderate problem rating with a priority score of 2, meaning it is not being exploited in the wild and it is associated with a product with a historical high risk.

The December release pales in comparison to November’s 62 vulnerabilities for Reader/Acrobat and five critical patches for Flash Player.

Adobe shipped its new Flash Player update that has a version number of 28.0.0.126.

Adobe has synced its security patching cycle with Microsoft’s, so the company rolls out fixes for the vulnerabilities discovered in its software on the second Tuesday on each month, just like the Redmond-based software giant.

Adobe said in July that it would retire Flash Player by the end of 2020.
