    Pretty bad exploit that affects all versions of Acrobat Reader.

    Let's see who fixes this one first; Adobe or Microsoft. This one's pretty ugly. It affects all versions of Adobe Reader ever; the video link shown is for the most current version of Reader. Got the link from SourceForge.

    Seems you need to close Firefox to install 18.0.0.194. I didn't on one of mine and had to close FF, un-install Flash and re-install before FF reported the correct version.

    cheers, Paul

    They both issued patches six weeks ago; the links are in the article.

    What's the Firefox connection with the Acrobat Reader and Windows Fonts issues in this thread?
