Security bulletin

Vulnerability fixes include those mentioned in the following:


Application Security

This release provides mitigations for vulnerabilities described in the security bulletin at http://www.adobe.com/go/apsb12-08.

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

New Security Ratings

Priority ratings have been added to Adobe’s security bulletins to clearly communicate real-world risk associated with the vulnerabilities addressed in any given security update. This design is targeted at benefiting the enterprise patching prioritization processes.

Protected Mode-Protected View

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

  • With Protected Mode ON in Reader, links in a PDF to local folders now work.
  • Printing is now possible on Win Server 2003-64 bit in Protected Mode.
  • On Win Server 2003-64 bit systems, the incompatibility dialog is NOT thrown on launching Reader for the first time after system reboot.

Apple browser support

Previous product versions of the browser plug-in were not compatible with the Safari 5.1+ browser that currently ships with Mac OS X 10.7 and 10.6. Today’s update resolves the incompatibility with Safari in 64-bit mode. If you still require a 32-bit solution, this update also supports Mozilla Firefox for Macintosh when it is opened in 32-bit mode. Note, a small number of functions relating to 3D and embedded Flash could render or operate incorrectly in some configurations. For those situations, try downloading the PDF file and opening it using the stand-alone Adobe Reader or Acrobat.

Note: Since this new 10.1.3 functionality supersedes previous versions, it is recommended that you remove the AdobePDFViewerFF.plugin if you had previously installed that from the Adobe LABs site.

Acrobat.com services integration

Signatures and Adobe EchoSign

With this release, the product further integrates Adobe EchoSign technology as follows:

  • New electronic signature types have been added, including typewritten and hand-drawn.
  • It is now possible to send signed documents via EchoSign.
  • AcroForms is now supported.
  • Users can sign AcroForms that are not Reader Enabled without a Submit button.
  • The document message bar and associated workflow dialog text have been updated.

Export PDF

Reader’s Export PDF service expands optical character recognition beyond English to include French, German, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish.
