F-Secure warns against use of Adobe Acrobat Reader

Posted on Friday, April 24 2009 @ 04:07:09 CEST by

F-Secure is advising people not to use the Adobe Acrobat Reader application, the security firm explains the default PDF viewer is insecure and recommends to use alternative applications.
Of the targeted attacks so far this year, more than 47 percent of them exploit holes in Acrobat Reader while six vulnerabilities have been discovered that target the program, Mikko Hypponen, chief research officer of security firm F-Secure, said in a briefing with journalists.


PDF and Flash browser plug-ins are also used in attacks known as "drive-by downloads" in which malware is surreptitiously downloaded onto a computer while the user is surfing the Web. The number of PDF files used in attacks rose from 128 between January 1 and April 16 last year to more than 2,300 in that same time period during this year, said Hypponen.
