Adobe Releases Acrobat, Acrobat Reader 7.0.3

Adobe Systems released late Tuesday Acrobat 7.0.3 in its Standard and Professional versions, as well as an update to Acrobat Reader.

These releases address a plug-in buffer overflow in Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Reader, the company said. If a malicious file were opened it could trigger a buffer overflow as the file is being loaded into Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Reader. A buffer overflow can cause the application to crash and increase the risk of malicious code execution. The updates also add improved security.

The updates require version 7.0.2 to work.
