Adobe Fills Critical Gaps

Adobe closes critical gaps in the PDF reader that developers of Adobe have today two vulnerabilities in its PDF reader closed. The first update is required only for Linux users, the second, however, eliminates a problem in Acrobat. You can find both vulnerabilities in the JavScript component of the Adobe Reader. Who turns this functionality, so is on the safe side. However, the two patch is recommended.

The first security breach concerns only the Adobe Reader on Linux. The developers provide the update for versions 8 and 9 at the disposal. The second update is Adobe Reader for all platforms and exists also in Acrobat. Also the updates only for versions 8 and 9 is available here, although older editions are affected. Adobe in the security bulletin specifies that the two vulnerabilities be exploited so far inactive. Perhaps check out Herbie Mann for more information. Nevertheless, find sample code that could be used to take advantage of the problems for attacks on the Internet already.
