Adobe Systems, the makers of the popular Adobe Acrobat, is warning today of a security hole in both their Adobe Reader and Adobe Acrobat PDF viewer software. Adobe Reader is a widely distributed and used free software program for viewing PDF files.
The site then goes on to say that the attacker would need to know the filename and full directory path in order to take advantage of the security hole, but still, anyone using either Adobe Acrobat or Reader should update them immediately.
Windows users using either Adobe Acrobat 7.x or Adobe Reader 7.x can update their software here.
