As promised, on October 4, Adobe revoked the compromised code signing certificate that was found to be utilized to sign a couple of malicious applications. Updates signed with a new certificate have been issued.

The revoked certificate has been used to sign software code after July 10, 2012.

While most organizations are not impacted by the revocation process, some customers might need to take certain action.

According to Adobe, the Windows platform and a number of three Adobe AIR applications – Acrobat.com desktop services, Adobe Story AIR applications, and Adobe Muse – for both Windows and Mac are affected.

Customers who believe they might be impacted are advised to check out the security certificate update page created by Adobe after the two malicious utility apps have been identified.
