Adobe Acrobat 0-Day

There is an Adobe Acrobat +Reader exploit now circulating in the wild.  Adobe has stated they may not have a patch for several weeks.  You can protect yourself in the meantime by disabling Javascript within Acrobat.  See below:

Hackers have been exploiting a critical bug in Adobe Reader, the popular PDF-viewing software, for at least nine days, researchers said Friday, but a patch may not be ready for another three weeks.

To disable JavaScript in Adobe Reader, Windows users should select “Preferences” from the Edit menu, then click on “JavaScript” in the ensuing list and uncheck the box marked “Enable Acrobat JavaScript.” Mac users will find Preferences under the “Adobe Reader” menu.
