Windows 7: Adobe explains PDF patch delay.

Adobe explains PDF patch delay.

Emergency patch of a critical PDF bug would have postponed January's already scheduled enterprise-oriented update.

Quote:
Adobe chose to wait until mid-January to patch a critical PDF bug because issuing an emergency update would have disrupted its quarterly security update schedule, the company said.
Unless users apply one of the workarounds that Adobe's suggested, the decision will leave systems open to attack until Jan. 12, when the patch is released. According to several security firms, the flaw has been in use by criminals since at least Nov. 20. Adobe only found out last week that the vulnerability in its Reader and Acrobat applications was being actively exploited.
