hello again all!
In a slight turn from my last post about the joys of valentine’s day shopping, I must alert you all to a new vulnerability that was released from Adobe regarding their reader product.
From the Agency for Enterprise Information Technology:
Within the last few hours, AEIT has been made aware of a 0-day exploit in Adobe Acrobat/Reader. This vulnerability is in the wild and currently being exploited. It allows code execution and there is no patch provided by Adobe. A workaround is currently available. All versions of Adobe Acrobat/Reader 9 and earlier are affected.
Adobe Reader 9 and earlier version
Adobe Acrobat Standard, Pro, and Pro Extended 9 and earlier versions
(Read: All Versions of Adobe Acrobat/Reader 9 and earlier)
Of course, those with up-to-date virus/spyware definitions will be in much better shape than those without, but please be careful nevertheless!
