Adobe puts Acrobat flaw on the critical list


Adobe users are being urged to upgrade their software after the firm reassessed the impact of a recently discovered vulnerability in Adobe Reader and Adobe Acrobat 7.

The flaw, first discovered last month, was initially thought capable only of crashing Adobe's software. Subsequent investigation revealed the flaw also creates a potential means for hackers to run hostile code in cases where Windows users running the affected software and IE (though not other browsers) visit maliciously constructed websites.
