Security bulletin

Vulnerability fixes include those mentioned in the following:


Application Security

This release provides mitigations for vulnerabilities described in the security bulletin. Products with Protected Mode or Protected view enabled are not subject to these vulnerabilities.

Security Settings

For more details about these and other security features, see the Application Security Guide.

  • Wild cards and privileged locations:

    • Wild card handling for trusted hosts now conforms to the Cross Domain Specification.
    • A new preference cTrustedSitesPrivate allows IT to permit less restrictive wildcard usage when specifying trusted hosts.
  • bDisableTrustedFolders|Sites now removes Options button from YMB when disabled and locked.

  • bDisableJavaScript in HKLM allows locking the JS engine off. An admin’s privileged location list in HKLM can bypass this restriction.

  • The Win OS Security Zone setting in the Privileged locations panel now includes Local Intranet zones in addition to the current Trusted Sites zone. The product should assign trust as Internet Explorer does.

  • LC Workspace XFA in Flex forms will now honor Win OS trust zone override.

Multimedia security and trust

  • Multimedia trust is now integrated into the Trust Manager framework (Privileged locations and the Yellow Message Bar).

  • Legacy Multimedia trust (trust for media types that use a player other than the product’s) is now stored in the registry at cTrustManager\cMultiMedia rather than TMDocs.sav.

  • The following UI items are removed from Preferences > Multimedia Trust (Legacy):

    • Clear your list of trusted documents
    • Display permissions for ( ) Trusted documents ( ) Other documents

Protected Mode-Protected View

The following improvements and bug fixes have been made for the sandboxing feature on Windows:

  • Reader in protected mode is now compatible with Entrust software and Symantec PGP whole disk encryption.
  • With Acrobat’s protected view enabled for All Files and Files from potentially unsafe locations, files in privileged locations now open outside of protected view.
  • Acrobat performance is improved for form distribution workflows when a PDF is already open in PV.
  • Acrobat: Acrobat now shows the Add reviewers dialog when selected in Tracker for Email based reviews and the Change deadline feature works for the send as attachment case.
  • Revocation checking that uses MSCAPI (native Microsoft or third-party Tumbleweed) now functions correctly.
  • Reader performance is improved during save operations from a browser.

Export from PDF

  • When a user chooses to convert a PDF to Word or Excel, a dialog offers the user the option to subscribe to the conversion service.
  • The Export from PDF service now automatically recognizes text even if the original document was a scanned image.


The print dialog has been improved.  The new layout makes it easier to change the page orientation, print on both sides of the paper, print multiple pages on a single sheet, print over multiple sheets, and other tasks.


  • Adobe’s EchoSign service continues to be further integrated into Acrobat and Reader.
  • The presence and behavior of the Sign Pane can be configured by admins via registry-level preferences.
  • The performance and stability of signing operations is also improved.

Bug fixes

  • On printing a PDF file to a PCL printer via Acrobat or Reader, the italic output in the printout is not correct.

  • Mouseover events in interactive PDF form fields do not work properly (Applicable only to Acrobat/Reader 10.1.1).

  • 3D PDFs may crash when viewed in VMWare.

  • When converting a webpage having a scrollable inline frame only the visible content is converted and content seen on scrolling down is dropped.

  • Plug-in takes long time to load in the browser when rendering dynamic form on Windows XP.

  • Form submission performance is slow with ZCI on Reader 10.1.

  • Product view generated in Catia hides some elements when converted to prw/pdf.

  • Repeatedly opening and closing PDFs in one browser session may cause a freeze or crash.

  • Custom-encoded font glyphs truncated in Acrobat 10 on Windows.

  • Form goes into unresponsive state when signing form.

  • 2951429: Ink Manager color swatches are broken, display in RGB, most spots missing.

  • Printing workarounds for the issues below appear at http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/928/cpsid_92870.html:

    • The printing preference to print on both sides of the paper is on by default.
    • Reader crashes when trying to print when Protected Mode is on.
  • Acrobat X Professional crashes on close-Preflight panel access: See http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/928/cpsid_92893.html

  • PDFs in a browser appear as a grey box and don’t display when sent via HTTPS/SSL: For a hot fix and workaround, see http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/930/cpsid_93026.html.

  • Some plugins that rely on HFTs may cause a hang or crash. For example, the LeanGreen plugin does not work. Acrobat 10.1.2 crashes when closing Acrobat after accessing Preflight panel.
