New Adobe Reader zero-day in the wild
Adobe is warning of a zero-day flaw in Adobe Reader that is being actively exploited in Adobe Reader 9.x on Windows as part of "limited, targeted attacks". The security advisory says that the critical flaw affects Adobe Reader X (10.1.1) and Adobe Acrobat X (10.1.1) and their earlier versions for Windows and Mac OS X. Adobe Reader 9.4.6 and earlier 9.x versions for Unix are also vulnerable. Adobe says the hole is caused by memory corruption in the processing of Universal 3D files (U3D) which could cause a crash "and potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system".
