Re: Adobe Reader vulnerability Alert



From: "bryan" <bryan@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

| Adobe has announced a vulnerability in the latest version of REader, Acrobat
| and Flash Player. This vulnerability may allow a remote, unauthenticated
| attacker to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial-of-service condition.
| Adobe announced that until there is a fix for the vulnerability users should
| rename C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 9.0\Reader\authplay.dll or C:\Program
| Files\Adobe\Acrobat 9.0]\Acrobat\authplay.dll. They also state renaming these
| files may cause users to experience a non-exploitable crash or error message
| when opening a PDF that contains SWF content. Does this mean the pc could
| crash or just the Acrobat program? Any suggestions would be GREATLY
| appreciated!
