Symantec recommends action on Adobe vulnerability fix

Symantec : 14 January, 2010  (Technical Article)
Low Patch Tuesday Workload should offer no excuse to relax with important updates also coming from Adobe and Oracle this week
Microsoft, Adobe and Oracle have released security updates to address product vulnerabilities.

Microsoft issued one bulletin covering a "critical" vulnerability that affects Embedded OpenType (EOT) Font. This is a user-level, client-side issue that requires a victim to view a Web page containing malicious content or to open a malicious file.

Adobe released a security update for Reader and Acrobat. Adobe rates these issues "critical" and urges users to update as soon as possible. In this release, the vendor has addressed the zero-day issue that was first made public December 14, 2009. Exploit code for this issue is available and active exploits have been detected.

Finally, Oracle has released its quarterly "Critical Patch Update". This release addresses 24 vulnerabilities across multiple applications.

"This has been a relatively quiet month in terms of patch updates from Microsoft," said Ben Greenbaum, senior research manager, Symantec Security Response. "However, we would urge users to pay particular attention to the Adobe update which addresses a serious vulnerability where attempts have been made to steal source code from the some of the world's largest organisations including Google."
