Core Security finds critical Adobe Reader hole | Latest Security News

"A critical security hole in Adobe Reader could allow an attacker to take control of a computer, according to Core Security Technologies.
The vulnerability affects version 8.1.2 of Reader, Core Security said in a statement issued on Tuesday to coincide with Adobe's planned release of a security update to fix the vulnerability.
An attacker could put malicious code in JavaScript embedded in a PDF and spread that via a Web site or e-mail. Once the file is opened, the code could manipulate the program's memory allocation pattern and trigger the vulnerability to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user."
