Adobe Reader Exploit

Adobe Reader recently had an exploit that allowed the download and execution of a remote file upon opening a .pdf in Adobe Reader software. Sophos released a video demonstrating this. If you use Adobe Reader ensure that you update it regularly to remain protected against exploits like these.


  1. Thanks for sharing this. I wasn't aware of it at all.

  2. Man, I'd always heard of Reader being so exploitable but never knew how. Thanks for the demo! I'll be sure to update on time now.

  3. Interesting, thanks for that info
