Windows 7: Update: Adobe issues emergency PDF patches.

Update: Adobe issues emergency PDF patches.

Quote:
As expected, Adobe today released an emergency update that patched a pair of critical vulnerabilities in its popular PDF viewing and editing software.
Adobe ranked both bugs as critical.
Last Thursday Adobe said it would issue a rush patch for Adobe Reader and Adobe Acrobat on Feb. 16; it made good on the promise today by addressing two flaws. One was identical to the cross-domain request vulnerability fixed last week in Flash Player, Adobe's ubiquitous media player, while the second was a vulnerability that attackers could exploit to install malware on a targeted machine.
