If you’re using Adobe Reader 8 or lower, you may be vulnerable to an exploit that is actively being used and reportedly cannot be detected by common antivirus applications. You should upgrade to Adobe Reader 9 immediately.
US-CERT encourages users and administrators to do the following to help mitigate the risk:
- Review Adobe Security Bulletin APS08-19 and update to Adobe Reader 9.
- Use caution when opening untrusted files.
- Install antivirus software and keep the virus signatures up to date.
