Adobe Patches 23 Vulnerabilities

Adobe released updates for Reader and Acrobat on the 5th that fix 23 vulnerabilities, including two that are actively being exploited in attacks that could allow someone to take control of the victim computer.  One critical vulnerability is being used in attacks against Reader and Acrobat; another, fixed in an emergency update late last month, targets Flash Player.

Details are in the latest security advisory.

The next quarterly security updates for Adobe Reader and Acrobat are scheduled for February 8, 2011.
