Macromedia has released a batch of security patches to cover a trio of flaws affecting some of its enterprise-facing server products.

Affected products include Flash Media Server, Breeze Communication Server/ Live Server and Contribute Publishing Server. The Flash Media Server bug affects versions 1.0 through 1.5. The company explained that the server does not sufficiently validate some RTMP (Routing Table Maintenance Protocol) data, a bug that can cause server instability or crashes.

A second alert was released to warn about a DoS hole in Breeze Communication Server/Live Server, which is part of the companys Web conferencing and communications software suite. The third vulnerability, in Contribute Publishing Server, can allow malicious hackers to hijack sensitive information. The flaw affects versions prior to 1.11.
