“End of support means that Adobe no longer provides technical support, including product and/or security updates, for all derivatives of a product or product version (e.g., localized versions, minor upgrades, operating systems, dot and double-dot releases, and connector products).” reads the analysis published Adobe.
In the last years, many times threat actors exploited vulnerabilities in Adobe software, including Flash, Reader, and Acrobat, and the company always released security fixes to address them. When the products will reach the end-of-support their users will remain exposed to cyber threats leveraging flaws in the popular applications.
Organizations will need to negotiate extended support in order to have more time to upgrade their systems.
