More security woes for Adobe

Another security vulnerability has been found in Adobe products – this time affecting Adobe Reader and Adobe Acrobat.
This one sends out emails with a PDF document attached (Adobe products are commonly used to read these large files).
Anyone opening the attachment receives a malicious file that can run on a fully patched system with either Adobe Reader or Acrobat installed. Symantec products detect the file as Trojan.Pidief.H.
Adobe has acknowledged the vulnerability and says it is investigating. Updates are available here.
Last week Adobe issued patches for its Flash Player and AIR products.
