Adobe Reader Security Update

14 Ott/09

Adobe has released a security patch for their Adobe Reader and Adobe Acrobat line of products that fix several security vulnerabilities that have been rated as critical. The vulnerabilities that have been discovered could cause Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat to crash which could potentially allow attackers to take control of the computer system. The security patch raises the version of Adobe Reader to 9.2 which is the version that users should install to protect their software programs from potential exploits.

Downloads are available for both Adobe Reader and Acrobat at the Adobe website for Windows, Mac and Unix. Acrobat users find download links for their product in the Adobe Security Bulletin which also contains details about the vulnerabilities that have been patched.

Our reader Paulus mentioned that the light version of Adobe Reader – called Adobe Reader Lite – is already available at various download sites including Major Geeks. Adobe Reader Lite is a third party project that removes several modules of Adobe Reader which are usually not needed by most users including popups and plugins.

Users who only want PDF reader capabilities can also take a look at Adobe Reader alternatives which are usually much faster than the original and more secure as well as they are not that targeted by hackers yet. Viable options include Foxit PDF Reader or muPDF.
