Adobe is currently investigating what appears to be the inappropriate use of an Adobe code signing certificate for Windows. We plan to revoke the impacted certificate on October 4 2012 for all software code signed after July 10 2012. Customers should not notice anything out of the ordinary during the certificate revocation process.
Is your Adobe software vulnerable because of this issue? No. This issue has no impact on the security of your genuine Adobe software. Are there other security risks to you? We have strong reason to believe that this issue does not present a general security risk.
The revocation of the certificate affects the Windows platform and three Adobe AIR applications* that run on both Windows and Macintosh. The revocation does not impact any other Adobe software for Macintosh or other platforms.
Adobe is issuing updates for all impacted products to provide customers with software code signed using a new digital certificate.
