Trailrunner7 writes "Adobe is warning its users about a critical vulnerability in Flash that affects Adobe Reader and Acrobat, as well, and is being used in some highly targeted attacks right now. The vulnerability in Flash Player affects Reader and Acrobat, both of which include Flash functionality, but it does not affect Reader X. Adobe officials said that Reader X's Protected Mode sandbox would prevent successful exploits. The company plans to have a patch for the affected products ready by next week for all platforms, including Windows, Mac, Linux, Android and Solaris."
