Windows 7: Sandboxed Adobe Reader to Ship Next Month

18 Oct 2010   #1

Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit. SP1.
Sandboxed Adobe Reader to Ship Next Month

Adobe announced that the next major version of its PDF products, which includes the much awaited sandboxed Adobe Reader, will be released next month.

Dubbed Acrobat X, the new product family will include Adobe Reader X, Acrobat X Suite, Acrobat X Pro, and Acrobat X Standard.

From a security perspective the release will be very important, because of the new sandboxing technology enabled by default in the products.

Adobe Reader can be found on most of the world's computers, but because of this ubiquity, the program is one of the preferred targets of criminals, who exploit it to infect users with malware.

And Adobe Reader was never in short supply of critical arbitrary code execution vulnerabilities, bringing the company a lot of criticism from the security community for failing to secure its code.

In May 2009, Adobe announced a code hardening effort, which involved reviewing old portions of code dating since before the Secure Product Lifecycle (SPLC) was introduced.
