and Adobe Acrobat.

Only Windows versions are affected.


Checking for new versions from within Adobe Reader doesn't work, it says there's no update. So this is really hot news Smiley Wink

    I waited to see how fast the Adobe automatic check for updates was. After 2 days still nothing. And manually checking for updates still says no new version available. Not good for a critical security issue Smiley Sad


    So, for Windows versions running Adobe Reader 11.0.07, you should download & install the 11.0.08 security patch from here:


    For other versions, refer to the link in the post above.


    These updates address a vulnerability that could allow an attacker to circumvent sandbox protection on the Windows platform.
