Default Yeah, Acrobat's an ongoing issue

Best course of action is to disable Javascript support inside Acrobat Reader - not sure that helps with this vulnerability, but it has with the past few. They're supposed to release an update this week to fix the latest problem. However, they never release it as a new installer, it's an update to an existing one. So on a new computer you have to install the vulnerable version and then update - really irritating.
