Secunia – Advisories – Adobe Acrobat / Reader Plug-in Buffer Overflow Vulnerability:
http://secunia.com/advisories/16466/



A vulnerability has been reported in Adobe Reader and Adobe Acrobat, which potentially can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user’s system.

The vulnerability is caused due to an unspecified boundary error in the core application plug-in and can be exploited to cause a buffer overflow when a specially crafted file is opened.

Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code.


Okay so lemme get this straight… Adobe has a security vulnerability .. a buffer overflow…. and I either have to ask everyone to hit the update button [yeah right, that’s gonna happen] or I have to deploy possibly three patches…and I’m not sure what version of 6 I have in the first place?


Yo?  Adobe?  Heard of rollup patches?
