Adobe Acrobat Reader Security Issues Continue

Adobe just released security updates for various products, including Adobe Acrobat Reader for Windows and Mac OS X, as part of it's regular release schedule. Reader allows computer users to view Acrobat PDF documents. According to Google - who has a bit of an ax to grind because of their sandboxed PDF viewer that is an integral part of the Chrome browser - they found several remaining issues that could be exploited by the Bad Guys. PDF docs are ubiquitous, and it's a problem when it's difficult to feel confident that you can view them safely.




Windows users who still use version 9 of Reader have been advised to upgrade to Adobe Reader X, because this version contains a sandbox that makes exploiting the holes more difficult.
