another font-related flaw
Does anyone actually use this anymore?
I thought for a minute that they'd finally realised it runs like a dog
Or you can just use Foxit Reader or Sumatra PDF and save yourself all this trouble...
im always suprised at the amount of critical bugs that come out of adobe reader when all it really does is show a pdf. I bet theres loads of features in pdf's that noone really uses.
A nice idea comes to mind:
*.spdf Simple Portable Document Format (you read it here first!)
no external hyperlinking
no custom/embedded fonts
just plain text and eps graphics
But then, you could use LaTeX for that ( with the option to convert to ps or pdf )

I don't know why everyone rails against Adobe, every tech company has had lots of security issues, Apple (numerous safari bugs), Microsoft (help, shortcuts, conficker, etc) and to single on Adobe for a flaw that was discovered by a white-hat researcher, disclosed and fixed before any exploitation of the flaw just seems unfair. Surely Adobe should be praised for reacting in a timely fashion?
Hmmm that many bugs, not really surprised. it is a good platform, but is rarely seen to have bugs in it compare to others like Bakes said.
I have problems with adobe, but I use foxit as an easy and obvious cheap alternative.
It's rarely seen to have bugs in it?
Well, okay. I'll go tell our security department they've been worried for nothing ever since the introduction of Adobe's products...
There is a reason we're forcing the latest stable versions of Shockwave & Flash on 2000 clients this week...
