Adobe Acrobat & Photoshop: Network Connection Target Hosts

This post lists the internet communication targets of Adobe Acrobat Reader, Photoshop, and Creative Cloud. This post is a part of my application network connection monitoring series, a group of articles that explain how to analyze the network traffic of any Windows or macOS app.

The series consists of the following articles:

  • Part 1: explanation of the methodology
  • Part 2: list of MS Office & Teams communication targets
  • Part 3: list of Windows, OS services & UWP apps communication targets
  • Part 4: list of Citrix CVAD communication targets
  • Part 5 (this article): list of Adobe Acrobat Reader, Photoshop, & Creative Cloud communication targets

TL;DR

Adobe Acrobat Reader, Photoshop, & Creative Cloud talk to 81 hosts and 1,024 IPs on the internet. List of URLs & details below.

About This Data

What Is This List?

The table below lists the internet hosts Adobe Acrobat Reader, Photoshop, & Creative Cloud communicated with in a real environment. For each application, the table shows:

  • Application name
  • Application version(s)
  • Process(es) of the application
  • Number of distinct target IP addresses
  • Names and ports of the target hosts

Where Does the Data Come From?

The data was collected in vast limits’ internal network by uberAgent, our endpoint monitoring and analytics product. The data spans a 30-day time range in early 2021.

The table contains metadata of actual network communications. It is accurate and complete insofar as I did not alter anything. I did, however, remove some internal systems and the results of manual web browsing (or similar). Some hostnames may be specific to our location (Germany).
