A critical vulnerability exists in Adobe Reader 9.1, 8.1.4, 7.1.1 and earlier. This vulnerability would cause the application to crash and could potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system. A second vulnerability has also been reported that appears to affect Adobe Reader for Unix only (CVE-2009-1493).

Solution(s)

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
