Adobe on Tuesday shipped quarterly fixes for its flagship Reader and Acrobat software running on Windows and Macintosh.
The update addresses six “critical” flaws, including two vulnerabilities that were emergency patched last month in Reader and Acrobat versions 9. The release addresses a total of six flaws and updates users to version 10.1.2 and, if they are unable to upgrade to Reader/Acrobat X, version 9.5.
The holes plugged by Tuesday’s release can be exploited by attackers to crash or take control of a targeted system.
In a blog post on Tuesday, Adobe explained the change.
