Adobe Reader and Acrobat software vulnerable to attacks

Adobe’s software, that is used by millions of people to read documents has rarely had flaws that would have made it the target of hackers. That is until now. As the post on Adobe Systems Inc., web site informed, some of its programs contain such “critical” flaws that would allow malicious programs to get on a PC without user noticing that.
Adobe said that the software that will rectify the problem might not be available until the end of October and although Adobe has posted the instructions for how to work around the problem on its website, some experts still believe that may not be fast enough to stop determined hackers. The instructions involve changing settings in a database, controlling operations of Microsoft Windows. The users unable to program that database will have to wait until the software itself is fixed.
