Serious Vulnerabilities Remain in Reader After Huge Patch Release...

Quote:
Adobe patched a huge number of flaws in its Reader software on Windows and Mac OS X on Tuesday, many of which were reported to the company by members of Google's internal security team, which had set up a long-term fuzzing program to look for interesting crashes in the embedded PDF viewer in the Chrome browser. However, the Google researchers said that there are still a number of serious vulnerabilities in the application running on Windows and OS X that Adobe failed to patch and so the researchers have released limited details on the bugs and some advice for users on how to mitigate the risks from the vulnerabilities.
