Security bulletin

This release provides mitigations for vulnerabilities described in the security bulletin at http://www.adobe.com/go/apsb13-02.

Improvements

Security

Certified document trust

This release supports the 11.0 feature that introduced the ability to elevate any certified document to a privileged location for the Windows and Macintosh versions of Reader and Acrobat. When set, certified documents become trusted for exemption from the same security restrictions from which other privileged locations are exempt. For details, see http://www.adobe.com/go/acroappsecurity.

Flash

Flash is no longer integrated in with the product. Features that require Flash now leverage the machine’s local copy of Flash. This new strategy allows administrators to manage products and updates independently of Acrobat products. Note that the Flash Active X component is not enough to display this content. A full Flash player must be installed, and enterprise admins should download an installer suitable for distibution across their organization by starting here: http://www.adobe.com/products/players/flash-player-distribution.html.

For more detail, see http://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/using/flash-player-needed-acrobat-reader.html.

Windows 8 compatibility

PDF ownership changes have been implemented for Windows 8 compatibility and interoperability with Acrobat XI and Reader XI.

Digital Signatures

See the the certified document trust feature under Security above.
