Adobe to Patch Reader Zero-Day This Week

Another week passes, another zero-day exploit and another Adobe rushed out emergency patch to plug the hole. This behavior is becoming the norm for Adobe products, especially in 2013. Adobe will be releasing patches for two vulnerabilities sometime this upcoming week.

In lieu of a patch, Adobe urged users to upgrade to Reader 11, then turn on "Protected View," an enhancement to the sandbox that adds additional defensive features.
