DESCRIPTION:
A vulnerability has been reported in Adobe Reader/Acrobat, which can
be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.

The vulnerability is caused due to an unspecified error and can be
exploited to cause a buffer overflow. No further information is
available.

Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.

NOTE: Reportedly, the vulnerability is currently being actively
exploited
.

SOLUTION:
Do not process untrusted documents.

The vendor is planning to release updates for Adobe Reader/Acrobat 9
by March 11th, 2009.

My advice: get rid of the beast, and switch to FoxIt: http://www.filehippo...oxit/changelog/

Never liked the Adobe Reader...Its bulky compared to Foxit and hogs a lot resources also.
