A patch has been released for the version 9 of Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Reader. This update fixes the security vulnerability that was found about two weeks ago. The leak has been rated very critical and affects the older versions of the PDF program, too. Currently there is no patch for those versions available.
Via the vulnerability malicious code could be executed if an infected PDF file was opened. The patch is only available for Windows and Mac users. Linux users have to be patient like the users of the older Adobe versions.
