Adobe fixes Reader, Acrobat for Mac OS

Adobe Systems has updated its Adobe Reader and Adobe Acrobat for Apple Computer's Mac OS to version 7.0.2. The updates fix two vulnerabilities. The first flaw lies in the way the applications process JavaScript tags embedded in PDF files, according to Adobe. An attacker could launch executable programs on the victim's system by crafting a malicious PDF file. The attacker would have to know the exact location of the executable, Adobe said in an advisory released on Monday.
