LANDesk Patch News Bulletin: How to Use AAMEE from Adobe to Remediate Mac Vulnerability Definitions 26-MAR-2013

Version 1

    LANDesk Security and Patch News



    • (March 26, 2013) A work around for remediating certain Adobe applications using the Adobe Application Manager Enterprise Edition (AAMEE) tool is available. The work-around addresses this customer request:


    • In an effort to improve patching for Macs, and at the instruction of LANDesk to open a ticket whenever we find a patch that's missing, I'd like to bring attention to Adobe CS Suite. Technically they are not "missing" patches, but "detect_only", which I assume is because one can't deploy the downloaded packages in their original state with LANDesk. However, it's very easy to create individual or combo patches with Adobe Application Manager Enterprise Edition (AAMEE).

      Once AAMEE is installed you can automatically create new full packages or update patch packages as combos or singles, automatically. Moving forward as we transition more enterprise support for Macs we would like to CS packages available for download and deployment. We request that the LANDesk patch team incorporate CS patches into their workflow for the benefit of all customers.
