A critical update for Acrobat and Adobe Reader

Yesterday Adobe published an update for Acrobat and Adobe Reader installations. This is because of a vulnerability that is considered as critical. This vulnerability uses JavaScript code that can be embed in pdfs to lead to remote code execution.
This vulnerability affects only this versions of the application:* Adobe Reader 8.0 through 8.1.2* Adobe Reader 7.0.9 and earlier* Adobe Acrobat Professional, 3D and Standard 8.0 through 8.1.2* Adobe Acrobat Professional, 3D and Standard 7.0.9 and earlier
You can read more about this issue directly from Adobe Security.
I hope we wont have to get use to this kind of patches and critical updates similar to Microsoft patches for its products where we had to download a new security patch for IExplorer, or Word or Windows every week or less.
