    Buffer Overflow Vulnerability in Adobe Acrobat

    Details: Malicious content inserted into a file, such as a document, could trigger a buffer overflow if the file is distilled to PDF with Adobe Acrobat. A buffer overflow can cause Acrobat to crash and can result in malicious code execution.

    (Wouldnt normally post this, but everyone has PDF stuff - and its not often that Adobe Reader presents security flaws)
    Certifications: ITIL Foundation; MCTS: Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2010, Administration
    WIP: None at present

      We had to do it at work, as I work with PDfs all day long in the Newspaper industry all pages for papers are supplied by PDF so it was a neccesary move for us.

      Its good that you have posted as most people won't know about the patch.
