By the end of 2009, malicious Adobe Reader and Acrobat documents were to blame for 80 percent for security exploits, according to security firm ScanSafe. This reported by ComputerWorld's Greg Keizer just before Adobe released this update.
"PDF exploits are usually the first ones attempted by attackers," said Mary Landesman, a ScanSafe senior security researcher, referring to the multi-exploit hammering that hackers typically give visitors to malicious Web sites. "Attackers are choosing PDFs for a reason. It's not random. They're establishing a preference for Reader exploits."To read more about the security threat in Acrobat and Reader and get detailed information about the update, users can visit Adobe's Security Bulletin.
