Default Adobe's protection against embedded scripts incomplete

From http://www.h-online.com/security/new...e-1033144.html

Quote:
In a post on their blog, Security firm Bkis report that the protection against /launch attacks, introduced in Adobe Reader and Acrobat with update 9.3.3, is still incomplete. By enclosing the commands embedded in PDF documents in double quotation marks, protection can be bypassed and programs can be launched – although a warning dialogue requiring user confirmation is displayed.
