FYI, see link to article below regarding a critical vulnerability in Adobe. If you are able to work with PDFs without JavaScript, you should implement the short-term fix outlined in the article. I checked Symantec and their site lists this as a high risk vulnerability. There is no patch available yet from Adobe.

If you have both Adobe Reader and Adobe Acrobat (standard or professional), you need to apply the fix to both programs. This applies to all versions of both programs, up to and including 9.2.
