Adobe Systems Patches 17 Critical Security Holes

On June 29, Adobe Systems plugged 17 critical security holes affecting Adobe Reader and Acrobat including a patch for a zero-day vulnerability that impacted many of their other products, on multiple operating systems such as Windows, Mac and Linux.  The new versions of Acrobat and Reader are 8.2.3 and 9.3.3, but Adobe strongly recommends using the version 9.x products. 

A zero-day attack or threat is a computer threat that tries to exploit computer application vulnerabilities that are unknown to others or undisclosed to the software developer.

Adobe products should automatically update when your system is on and connected to the Internet, but SecurityOrb.com ask that you verify and initiate the process if it has not already occurred.
