    Here is Adobe's advisory:

    It won't work with Vista or Win2000 you need WinXP SP2 or Win2003 and IE7.

    More news here:

    and here:

    Javacool also has a fix:

    I believe that it would work with Foxit if you have Java enabled and if the user interacts with the tainted file. It doesn't work with IE 6 and probably won't with other browsers as I have seen nothing from FF and Opera.
