Adobe Acrobat/Reader 9.4 and 8.2.5

Adobe has released updates for Adobe Acrobat and Reader – 9.4 for the current 9.x versions and 8.2.5 for the older 8.x versions – to address several security vulnerabilities, along with enhancements to PDF creation, roaming profile workflows, and other bug fixes (full release notes are available in PDF form). The two patched security flaws include a crashing exploit that could allow a remote attacker to take control of your Mac. Adobe says that there “are
reports that this vulnerability is being actively exploited in the wild,” and thus unsurprisingly recommends that you update immediately, either from within the products or via the Adobe Product Updates page. (Free updates, various sizes)
