Adobe Fixes Adobe Download Manager Vulnerability

24 Feb/10

A security vulnerability in Adobe Download Manager was discovered this month besides the recently discovered security vulnerabilities in Adobe Reader, Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Flash which had also been discovered and fixed by Adobe.

We have posted information about the security vulnerability in the forum but not here on the blog. Adobe has now updated information about the security vulnerability which basically fixed the issue so that users who download and use the Adobe Download Manager from February 23 on do not download the vulnerable software.

Adobe has also posted instructions to verify that the vulnerable version of the Adobe Download Manager does not reside on the computer system if it has been downloaded prior to February 23.


Ensure that the C:Program FilesNOS folder and its contents (“NOS files”) are not present on your system. (If the folder is present, follow the steps below to remove).
Click “Start” > “Run” and type “services.msc”. Ensure that “getPlus(R) Helper” is not present in the list of services.
If the NOS files are found, the Adobe Download Manager issue can be mitigated by:

Navigating to Start > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs > Adobe Download Manager, and selecting Remove to remove the Adobe Download Manager from your system.

OR

Clicking “Start” > “Run” and typing “services.msc”. Then deleting “getPlus(R) Helper” from the list of services.
Then delete the C:Program FilesNOS folder and its contents.

Probably the easiest way to handle the issue is to uninstall the Adobe Download Manager if it is listed in the list of installed programs. If it is it can be uninstalled easily which will remove the issue. The issue only affects Windows versions of the Adobe Download Manager.
