Beware Excel Docs – Adobe 0-day Patch Coming

Adobe will release emergency fixes for a critical flaw in Flash and Reader that is being actively exploited in targeted attacks, planting malware on vulnerable computers.  The patches will be available the week of March 21, and will address the problem in Adobe Flash player 10 and Adobe Reader versions 9, 10 and X, with the exception of Reader X for Windows, which ships with a sandbox feature that has blocked the attacks so far.  The attackers are using specially-crafted Microsoft Excel documents to exploit the flaw.
