Security Firm Finds Zero-day Exploit Capable of Bypassing Adobe Reader Sandbox

Maximum PC:"Russian security firm Group-IB claims to have uncovered a critical Adobe Reader vulnerability that is currently being exploited in the wild by attackers in order to circumvent the ubiquitous PDF viewer’s sandbox, a security feature Adobe first introduced as part of Reader X nearly two years ago. Even though this zero-day vulnerability is said to have a few “limitations”, they don’t seem to be crippling enough to stop it from being sold on the black market for anywhere between $30,000 and $50,000." (Adobe, adobe reader, Software)
