Adobe and an unpatched flaw

February 24, 2009 at 4:41 pm Leave a comment

here is the patch for the flaw; unofficial, and with no [sic] warrenty.  It’s from Sourcefire, which has seen it seen launched in about a hundred targeted attacks.  It will probably get worse, since Adobe isn’t expected to patch the flaw for several weeks.  It apparently has to do with the way the reader handles images, which is nothing new in the way of a problem for the computer (image hacking dates back to the mid-90s after all).
