Adobe Acrobat/Reader 9.3.4 and 8.2.4

Adobe has released updates to Adobe Acrobat and Reader – for both the current 9.x versions and the previous 8.x versions – to address a critical security vulnerability related to TrueType font handling. You can update using the programs’ automatic update mechanisms, but many people, including us, have trouble with them, so use the links above to download the latest version manually if need be.
That said, be warned that many people are having trouble with the update to Acrobat 8.2.4 rendering the program unusable – Adobe is aware of the problem. Until a fix appears, users of Acrobat 8.x should hold off on the update or, if it’s too late, revert to 8.2.3. (Free updates, various sizes)
