Adobe will release updates for Reader and Acrobat on Tuesday that will fix critical security issues, including plugging a hole that could be used to take control of computers and which has been exploited in the wild, the company said on Thursday.
Adobe warned about that vulnerability, which also affected Flash Player, about three weeks ago and plugged the hole in Flash on 10 June.
The security updates coming on Tuesday are for Adobe Reader 9.3.2 for Windows, Mac and Unix; Adobe Acrobat 9.3.2 for Windows and Macintosh; and Adobe Reader 8.2.2 and Acrobat 8.2.2 for Windows and Mac, the company said in a blog post.
