It’s been a while since I last posted a tech and security related  post. So let me start the year by posting this useful note.

I got some notification that an Adobe update is available on their website. I remembered from the malware blog entry that they (Adobe) have an unpatched 0-day being used by an in-the-wild malware so I checked their website as well the their PSIRT Blog and yes its true an update is available. Quoting their blog

Today a Security Bulletin has been posted in regards to the January 12, 2010 quarterly security update for Adobe Reader and Acrobat. The update addresses critical security issues in the products, including a patch to resolve CVE-2009-4324 previously discussed in the Adobe PSIRT blog on December 15, 2009 (“Security Advisory APSA09-07 update”). Adobe recommends that users apply the updates for their product installations.

Read the complete blog advisory here.

Since I regularly use Adobe products, I wasted no time and patched my machines. You can get updates from Adobe download page

How about you? Have you updated to Adobe 9.3 too?
