Adobe Reader X

Fianlly, and after some long wait, Adobe hae announced Adobe Reader X.
Only available for Windows at the time of writing, the new version of this heavily exploited software has sandbox functionality, thus greatly reducing the possibility of malware being delivered via PDF documents.

I have noticed a worrying trend among many organisations to ensure all their Microsoft estate is fully patched and up to date via WSUS or a similar mechanism where other software, and Adobe Reader is probably the most widespread, is largely ignored.
