Adobe Acrobat and Reader 9.3.3

by Doug McLean

Adobe Acrobat 9.3.3 [1] and Reader 9.3.3 [2] are security updates to the longstanding PDF creation and viewing applications. The updates address several critical vulnerabilities [3], including one in Flash 10.0.45.2 that could be exploited by an attacker to take control of a user's system after a program crash. There are reports that this vulnerability is being actively exploited in the wild, so we recommend updating right away. (Free update, 86.62/8.03 MB)
