Adobe Reader allows users to view and print documents in Portable Document

This update fixes two vulnerabilities in Adobe Reader. These
vulnerabilities are detailed on the Adobe security page APSB10-28, listed
in the References section. A specially-crafted PDF file could cause Adobe
Reader to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running
Adobe Reader when opened. (CVE-2010-3654, CVE-2010-4091)

All Adobe Reader users should install these updated packages. They contain
Adobe Reader version 9.4.1, which is not vulnerable to these issues. All
running instances of Adobe Reader must be restarted for the update to take
effect.
