An out-of-band patch fixes a huge list of vulnerabilities in the company's PDF software.

Computerworld: On Tuesday, one week earlier than originally planned, Adobe released a security update for its widely used Reader and Acrobat software. The update patches 23 security vulnerabilities, including the one exploited by the well publicized "David Leadbetter" attacks which were discovered in early September. In all, 20 of the patched flaws "could lead to code execution," making them fairly dangerous.

Adobe has also started promoting its "sandboxing" technology which it plans to release later this year.
