Adobe Reader: Patch Fixes Vulnerabilities For PDF Viewer

Adobe have not been the best in the business at being the most secure over the years. This was proved today when the company rushed to patch two security holes in its popular PDF reader.

Adobe have only just recently fixed 6 critical flaws in its Flash software, and also promised to fix a vulnerability with Black Hat where they said they would release an emergency security update today.

The other was an unnamed flaw that fixed a flaw that could potentially lead to a social engineering attack.

The update brings the latest release version up to 9.3.4 and 8.3.4 for Reader and Acrobat.

More information on the security patch can be found at the source below.
