On October 4, 2012, the digital security certificate for certain Adobe products was revoked. IT admins who manage Adobe products on the Windows platform need to install product updates to minimize impact to their users.
For a list of affected products and the required certificate updates, see Security certificate updates.
Note: Adobe recommends that you always distribute the most recent updates after you test them in your environment. If you package Suite-based applications, be sure to use the updated AAMEE 3.1.
For any products that are part of an IT-managed image, the affected Adobe components of the image need to be updated. Specific guidance is provided in the following sections.
For more information, read the Certificate revocation FAQ.
An updated version of the Windows version of Adobe Application Manager Enterprise Edition (AAMEE) 3.1 with a new digital security certificate is available: Download the update
Note: Any AAMEE 2.x or 3.1 beta- or AAMEE 3.1 release-produced MSI package that contains Adobe updates needs to be removed from the system or server. The update certificates may have been revoked and direct verification of the certificate isn't possible from within the MSI package.
If you store updates on a locally housed Adobe Update Server, be sure to replace them with updated versions so that they have the new digital security certificates.
Open a command prompt or terminal and switch directory to the location of the AUSST utility.
Windows 32-bit <system drive>:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\OOBE\PDApp\Enterprise\utilities\AUSST
Windows 64-bit <system drive>:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\OOBE\PDApp\Enterprise\utilities\AUSST
Mac OS /Library/Application Support/Adobe/OOBE/PDApp /Enterprise/utilities/AUSST

Note: The root folder is the file-system location on your in-house update server where updates from the Adobe update server are stored. The root folder location must map to a valid HTTP URL.
To keep from having to inform clients of a new address for your server, keep the previous root and the same name.
To purge, type the same server location. For example,
AdobeUpdateServerSetupTool2.0 --root= C:\inetpub\wwwroot\Adobe
If you distribute the RUM client on Windows systems within your organization, replace it with the updated version. The RUM update is also available as part of the AAMEE 3.1 installer. Download the update
You can find updates for desktop products in Security certificate updates, or download and install the Adobe Customer Response Tool for Windows (command-line version for enterprise). The tool determines which products have updated certificates (not available for Creative Cloud). You can also find updates on the Licensing Website (LWS).
See Security certificate updates to get the Flash Player update.
If you installed Flash Media Server 4.5.3 before July 10, 2012, you don't need to do anything. For installations after July 10, 2012, you need to update to Flash Media Server 4.5.4.
Adobe recommends that all ColdFusion users install the patch—not just users who installed updates after July 10, 2012. You can install the update from the Licensing Website (LWS), or from the downloads section on Adobe.com.
