+ - Adobe Reader Zero Day is First Adobe Sandbox Escape->

Submitted by msm1267
msm1267 (2804139) writes "Researchers at Kaspersky Lab have confirmed that the zero-day exploit found in the wild targeting Adobe Reader and Acrobat is the first attack to successfully circumvent the sandbox in the ubiquitous Adobe products. Attackers are using malicious PDFs posing as an application for an international travel visa to exploit a zero-day vulnerability in Adobe Reader and Acrobat, a researcher at FireEye said. The exploit is the first to escape the sandbox included in Reader X and above."
