Software firm Adobe published on Tuesday an update
to close a handful of flaws in its ubiquitous Flash software and posted
a list of ways to protect against attacks targeting Acrobat and Reader.



Adobe underscored that, while current attacks use Javascript to exploit
the vulnerability in Reader and Acrobat, other protections are
necessary to defend against potential future attacks.



"Disabling JavaScript provides protection against currently known
attacks," Adobe's Product Security Incident Response Team said in the
post on its blog. "However, the vulnerability is not in the scripting
engine and, therefore, disabling JavaScript does not eliminate all
risk."
