Beware of PDF files attached to e-mails that appear to contain information about U.S. government jobs.

InformationWeek: Adobe has issued a warning about a new Flash vulnerability that is being actively exploited in the wild. Security researcher Mila Parkour first discovered the vulnerability when she found a malicious PDF attached to an e-mail from jobs@usajobs.gov, with a subject line referencing a new U.S. Office of Personnel Management application for the iPhone and iPad. The problem affects all operating systems, including Android.

Adobe plans to release a patch for the security hole in two weeks.
