    Post Adobe set to fix Critical Adobe Reader and Acrobat (Hole)

    Next week Adobe will be updating security patches for it's Reader and Acrobat The security updates coming on Tuesday are for Adobe Reader 9.3.2 for Windows, Mac, and Unix, Adobe Acrobat 9.3.2 for Windows and Macintosh, and Adobe Reader 8.2.2 and Acrobat 8.2.2 for Windows and Mac. The update will patch a hole in Adobe that can allow a user to take control of a computer and exploit the machine. This is a continuation of an update several weeks ago for Adobe Flash that was patched for the same hole.

    These updates will take the place of the next quarterly updates that were scheduled for July 13th

    So much for the Adobe update. Even with all the vulnerabilities addressed in the update, it wasn't completely successful, apparently due to a feature Adobe was not willing to alter. See the complete explanation at Adobe PDF Reader "Launch" vulnerability still exploitable.
