Adobe Reader and Acrobat 10.0.1 update available for download
Adobe Systems has released a security update for Adobe Reader 10.0.0 and earlier versions for Windows and Macintosh and for Adobe Acrobat 10.0.0 and earlier versions for Windows and Macintosh.
Critical vulnerabilities have been identified in Adobe Reader 10.0.0 for Windows and Macintosh and Adobe Acrobat 10.0.0 and earlier versions for Windows and Macintosh. These vulnerabilities could cause the application to crash and potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system. Risk for Adobe Reader X users is significantly lower, as none of these issues bypass Protected Mode mitigations.
The Updates are available for download from the Adobe Download Center:
Adobe recommends users of Adobe Reader 10.0.0 and earlier versions for Windows and Macintosh update to Adobe Reader 10.0.1, available now. Adobe recommends users of Adobe Acrobat 10.0.0 for Windows and Macintosh update to Adobe Acrobat 10.0.1.
