While the overall number of vulnerabilities fixed this month is relatively low, there is a zero-day (CVE-2021-1732) being exploited in the wild. Additionally, 11 of the Critical rated updates fix Remote Code Execution vulnerabilities.

Adobe has also released fixes for numerous vulnerabilities across Dreamweaver, Illustrator, Photoshop, Magneto, Acrobat, and Reader. APSB21-09 specifically addresses updates for Adobe Reader that are currently being exploited in the wild.

Thank you @Brittany for the excellent summary!

In addition, I’d like to mention that we’ve also added a set of Worklets as companion content. These Worklets are Microsoft’s official workaround guidance concerning two critical vulnerabilities with remote-code execution implications for TCP/IP IPv4 & IPv6 respectively.
