Adobe Reader Vulnerability
December 17th, 2009
It has come to our attention that there is a zero-day, unpatched vulnerability in Adobe’s PDF Reader/Acrobat software that allows data from a compromised computer to be hijacked. You can find information concerning the vulnerability at http://blogs.zdnet.com/
As indicated in the article:
1. There currently is no patch or update available from Adobe that completely protects against this exploit.
2. There is little to no detection of these malicious PDF files from most of the major Antivirus vendors, including the software used at PSU.
For those people whose computers are not on the domain, we would urge you to do the following:
As always, it is important to remember that you should not click on any link or document that comes in an email from a source that you do not know and trust.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. As stated above, if you have problems with checking and/or setting your preferences, please contact your tech or the Gorilla Geeks at extension 4600. We will be happy to walk you through the process or have someone come by your office, if needed.
Have a Great Holiday and Safe Computing!!!
