    Hi Nihil! long time no speak and thanks for the info people using this need to be aware.

    is this vuln being actively exploited? Although a hole is a hole most hacking is a numbers game and this hardly seems worth the time of a decent hacker and according to the advisory this company has a record of patching holes quickly IMHO, but i've become pretty stu-pit lately.

    ill try and re-sign up at gov-sec and a few other sites and see if anyones done anything with it.

    Hi Ted0b1,

    They seem to have fixed it already:

    http://www.foxitsoftware.com/pdf/rea...own_reader.htm

    I haven't heard of anyone getting caught by it, but I know that several members use it rather than Adobe.

    I guess you would still have to go to a malicious site and use the software.
