Adobe finally patches security hole



Adobe has finally issued a patch for a security vulnerability that could have allowed a hacker to take control of your compromised system.

Adobe Reader and Acrobat version 7,8 and 9 were all affected by the scurity hole which could have caused the applications to crash before allowing unauthorised access. Adobe had previously recommended turning off Javascript support to prevent
attacks until it could issue the patch.

That can now be re-enabled with the updates available from adobe.com/support/downloads/new.jsp.

Earlier this week Adobe released an unrelated update for Fireworks CS4, providing bug fixes and greater stability.
