More Adobe Acrobat, Reader PDF Problems Found

Posted: October 25, 2007 in Tech

Symantec Corp. said a malicious PDF document that exploits bugs in Adobe Systems Inc.’s Reader and Acrobat software is on the loose, just hours after Adobe patched the programs.

The security company has tagged the threat as Trojan.Pidief.A, a malware file that’s being used to lower security settings and download more malicious executables on to the compromised computer.

Users are advised to apply the patches outlined in Adobe Advisory as soon as possible.
