A week ago Sunday I posted a note about a serious security problem with Adobe’s Acrobat and Reader (formerly Acrobat Reader) products. The problem affected Reader versions 9.1.3 and earlier on all platforms (Mac, Windows, and Unix/Linux), and Acrobat 9.1.3 and earlier on Windows and Mac.
As promised, Adobe has released a new version, 9.2, of the software to address these (numerous) vulnerabilities. The details are given in the Security Bulletin APSB09-15. This is characterised as a Critical update, so I recommend all users install it as soon as they conveniently can.
For the Reader product, which most people will have, here are the download links:
- Linux / Unix: The official download link seems not to have been updated yet. You can get the version 9.2 installer (as RPM, DEB, or tarball) from the FTP site.
Download links and further information for the Acrobat product are in the Security Bulletin mentioned above.
