Adobe to ship critical Reader, Acrobat patches September 13, 2011

Quote:
Just a quick heads-up that Adobe will join Microsoft in releasing major security updates during Patch Tuesday next week (September 13, 2011).

Adobe plans to release “critical” patches to cover code execution vulnerabilities in its flagship Reader X software (Windows and Mac OS X).

The company is also planning to ship updates for Adobe Acrobat X (10.1) and earlier versions for Windows and Mac to resolve critical security issues.

Affected software:
  • Adobe Reader X (10.1) and earlier 10.x versions for Windows and Macintosh
  • Adobe Reader 9.4.5 and earlier 9.x versions for Windows and Macintosh
  • Adobe Reader 8.3 and earlier 8.x versions for Windows and Macintosh
  • Adobe Acrobat X (10.1) and earlier 10.x versions for Windows and Macintosh
  • Adobe Acrobat 9.4.5 and earlier 9.x versions for Windows and Macintosh
  • Adobe Acrobat 8.3 and earlier 8.x versions for Windows and Macintosh

Traditionally, Microsoft releases it's updates, security fixes, etc on the second Tuesday of every month. This has come to be called Patch Tuesday. A lot of other software companies release their own patches to coincide with Microsoft's release.

I know that folks here recommend that following ANY MS updates that we manually reboot the PC if Windows doesn't automatically call for it.

How do those in the know here feel about doing the same for updates from Adobe, Java, ect...?

It doesn't actually hurt anything if the upgrade doesn't call for a reboot.

I generally do them anyway after any kind of upgrade/patch because in the event it causes problems, you may find out about it right then & there, in some cases. And I usually create a restore point before upgrading Adobe, Java or anything else...just in case.
