Adobe, just like Microsoft, releases security updates on a schedule unless a vulnerability is actively exploited on a large scale and requires immediate attention. Updates for their pdf readers Adobe Reader and Acrobat have been released today that fix several security vulnerabilities.
The critical vulnerabilities are affecting all operating systems that Adobe Reader is compatible with (Microsoft Windows, Apple Macintosh and Unix based) and versions of Adobe Reader 9.3.1 and Adobe Acrobat 9.3.1 or earlier.
The critical nature of the vulnerabilities requires immediate attention from users who have affected software versions installed on their computer systems.
Adobe is offering the update through various channels. It is possible to check for updates from within the pdf readers by clicking on Help > Check for updates or to download the updates from the official Adobe website.
