Adobe scrambles to patch Acrobat zero-day hack
Adobe has reported a new "critical vulnerability" for current and older versions of Adobe Reader and Acrobat for Windows, Mac OS X, and Unix operating systems. The attack has already been exploited by hackers in targeted attacks against the Adobe 9 reader on Windows, the company stated in its security advisory The hack appears to have already been used in an attack on US defense contractors and research facilities.

Discovered by Lockheed Martin's Computer Incident Response Team and MITRE, the vulnerability could allow an attacker to send a malicious Adobe document file that crashes Reader, and "potentiallty allow an attacker to take control of the affected system," according to the Adobe Product Security Incident Response Team's alert. In a blog post, Adobe's director of product security Brad Arkin said that Adobe is planning to release a fix for the Windows versions of Adobe Reader and Acrobat 9.4.6 "no later than the week of December 12." There is currently no workaround for Reader 9.x.

Arkin said that the risk to Mac OS X and Unix users of Reader is "significantly lower," and that the attack can be blocked on Windows with Reader X by opening documents in Adobe Reader X in "protected mode." Patches for those versions of Reader will be held until the next quarterly update of Reader, scheduled for January 10.
Arkin encouraged anyone still using Reader 9. "We put a tremendous amount of work into securing Adobe Reader and Acrobat X, and to date there has not been a single piece of malware identified that is effective against a version X install," he claimed. However, that would appear not to apply to Reader and Acrobat X users who open documents without using protected mode.

Adobe's Flash and Acrobat have 'critical' vulnerability, may allow remote hijacking
When Adobe said Flash gives you the full web experience, it meant it. Part and parcel of the web, as we all know, is the good old hacking community, which has been "actively exploiting" a vulnerability in Flash Player (and earlier versions) and Adobe Acrobat and Reader 9.x to overtake people's machines and do hacky stuff with them. This so-called flaw also causes crashes, but that's probably not what's worrying you right now. Adobe says the 10.1 Release Candidate for Flash Player looks to be unaffected, while versions 8.x of Acrobat and Reader are confirmed safe. To remedy the trouble, the company advises moving to the RC for Flash, and deleting authplay.dll to keep your Acrobat from performing undesirable gymnastics. Oh boy, Steve's gonna have a field day with this one.Adobe's Flash and Acrobat have 'critical' vulnerability, may allow remote hijacking originally appeared on Engadget on Sat, 05 Jun 2010 17:45:00 EDT.

Seiten halbieren [Archiv] -
Ich habe ein Buch eingescannt. Da die Einzelseiten kleiner waren als DIN A5, habe ich gleich zwei Seiten »pro Blatt« eingescannt, wodurch ich jetzt auf jeder PDF-Seite gleich zwei Buchseiten habe. Nun möchte ich aber pro PDF-Seite nur eine Buchseite ha
