A critical vulnerability has been identified in Adobe Reader 9.1 and Acrobat 9.1 and earlier versions. This vulnerability (CVE-2009-1492) 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).

Adobe recommends users of Adobe Reader 9.1 and Acrobat 9.1 and earlier versions update to Adobe Reader 9.1.1 and Acrobat 9.1.1. Adobe recommends users of Acrobat 8 update to Acrobat 8.1.5, and users of Acrobat 7 update to Acrobat 7.1.2. For Adobe Reader users who can’t update to Adobe Reader 9.1.1, Adobe has provided the Adobe Reader 8.1.5 and Adobe Reader 7.1.2 updates.

Adobe said.... it will release quarterly security updates to coincide with Microsoft's Patch Tuesday as part of a new approach to product security for Adobe Reader and Acrobat.

The security updates will be delivered on a second Tuesday once a quarter, beginning this summer (2009).

I've changed the title of this thread to Adobe Reader Updates, and I've made it a sticky, so whenever a new Reader update occurs please post about it here.
