While most organizations will not suffer from the revocation process, some customers might need to take certain action.

Adobe said the Windows platform and three Adobe AIR applications – Acrobat.com desktop services, Adobe Story AIR applications, and Adobe Muse – for Windows and Mac are affected.

Customers who think they are suffering from the issue should check out the security certificate update page created by Adobe after they found out about the two malicious utility apps.
