Adobe has just released four very tightly defined notifications for new patches.
By new, we mean they were released after the patch updates were released last Tuesday.
In other words: If you have the habit of applying patches only once a month, this is one of the times you will have to break this habit.
In general, unexpected product updates that usually follow a consistent patch release pattern are called out-of-band patches, and that’s what we have here.
(Incidentally, this is not a very accurate use of the term out-of-band – the term generally refers to a special data or control signal sent via a completely separate channel to the main data stream to avoid accidental confusion – but it has become a non-exclusive use in the patch world).
Injured food: Character Animator (CVE-2020-9586), First Pro (CVE-2020-9616), Audition (CVE-2020-9618), First Rush (CVE-2020-9617).
Bulletins are numbered APSB20-25, followed by -27, -28 and -29, with a space of -26.
The APSB20-26 patch was actually released last week, Tuesday, leaving a gap of -25, suggesting that at least the APSB20-15 patch was ready in time for Tuesday’s patch, but was not finalized, perhaps to give it time for further testing or improvements.
