Security experts are warning Adobe customers to be extra vigilant following the discovery of an attack that attempts to exploit vulnerability in Adobe’s Reader and Acrobat products. Security researchers for Symantec said that the attack comes as a Trojan hidden in a PDF file attachment in junk emails. The attack attempts to lure email recipients into opening the attachment. When the file is opened, a malicious file disables the Windows firewall and downloads software. Adobe has since confirmed it is investigating the “reports of vulnerability in Adobe Reader and Acrobat 9.2 and earlier versions” and will issue a fix as soon as it has more information.
